Youthful excitement at Nobel Ceremony in Oslo

Students in their late teens and twenties hover in the hotel lobby, electronic devices ready.  Most are speaking Norwegian; a few are speaking unknown languages.  Their excitement is understated and understandable.  Within a few minutes — or maybe a few hours — Nobel Peace Prize winners are expected to show up.  No one is quite sure which one will be arriving first, but these students will be there to text, tweet and capture the moment they have been waiting for. Here at the Grand Hotel, Karman, Sirleaf and Gbowee have rock star status.
