Is it over for Le Cafè Français?

No French flag outside, no tables and chairs.
It used to be a popular place, where the owner from Algeria imported French Bakery items, and served coffee and light snacks.

Some will say, sad that it has closed, others will say it was about time!

Well, the newspapers have been writing about a place that is not run according to Norwegian rules.
People who where not allowed to stay in Norway, who did not even have work permission worked there illegally.

We have a TV program here in Norway, called ALT FOR NORGE (Everything for Norway).
Americans with Norwegian relatives who they don't know, are here participating in a reality program that runs over several weeks and takes them to very different parts of our country.

The winner will get to meet their relatives, the rest have to leave one by one. It is on tonight.
The previous episode was from Stavanger, you can see and read about it on Facebook, look for ALT FOR NORGE.

Today I saw AIDA at the harbour.

Happy Weekend!

Kvassheim Lighthouse.

Kvassheim lighthouse was operating from 1912 to 1990.

Today it is open every day during the summer season, the rest of the year on Sundays, apart from the month January.

It is a small coffee place and a small museum.
A little harbour is next to the parking area and you can walk next to the north sea and enjoy the nice open landscape.

It is south of Stavanger, and a good choice to visit when you are out at the area Jæren.

Summer in September.

We still have a FANTASTIC summer!!
In the Nordic countries summer is when we have +20C
( other places it will be summer when there are +25C )
For more than a week we have not had a drop of rain, and that together with temperatures much higher than what we are used to makes it worth remembering.
It feels good!
