The politicians payed 1 million kroner for some footprints from famous Nobel prize winners some years back through an organization named "Worldview Rights". With its headquarter based in Stavanger, it had a fine vision
(when it started back in 1995 ), and probably had some important meetings. At the end, the organization had severe financial problems!

Anyway, many years later, these footprints have finally been put out around the harbor in June 2012.
So if you walk around here, you might see some of these 16 kilo heavy blocks on the ground.
I guess I would have been more amazed if the famous people had actually been to Stavanger! Some tourists like them, so I grabbed my camera and took a photo too, so that you can see the result of the one million kroner.

1 million kroner for a few foodprints? Not bad...

I'm not sure how much one million kroner is compared to Australian dollars Gunn, but it sounds a lot, thank goodness at least they have now put the footsteps out for people to see.
