Reflections and autumn colours.

Streetlife.
















If you are in Norway you will have felt the rain, seen the news on TV, or read the newspapers.
Lots of places have FLOODS, and seeing houses as well as cars, moving, carried along by rivers, is  not very nice!!

Here in Stavanger we have had a lot of rain but no flooding. But today, we have had a glimpse of sunshine.

This is an image taken near the Cathedral.

Always something new to learn.











The author Knut F. Thoresen gave a speech today at the library about his new book. ("Til Norge for å dø"). It is about the life as Serbian slaves in German camps around in Norway during World War 2. (More than 4000 of them, and many of them died here in Norway!)

I had an image of Norwegians who gave food and helped some of the prisoners escape to Sweden.
That is what we learned at school (a long time ago).
But here I found myself hearing about Norwegians who worked for the Germans, as prison guards!

I left (for work) before the whole thing was finished, with a question about what we actually have learned from history..... Watching the news on TV really makes me wonder.

Lazy evening tonight.





















Just a relaxed evening at home.
A bit of pie and a glass or two of red wine, watching TV and relaxing after more than 8 hours at work.
It is pouring down with rain outside.
Good to be home and do "nothing" from time to time.

Rain-rain-rain.

















It will be a RAINY weekend here in the Stavanger area.
I hope that wherever you are,
you have a better weekend than us :)
