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.

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.

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!

Yesterday afternoon I got a glimpse of Tour des Fjords.
It is an annual bicycle race between the cities Bergen and Stavanger,
here on the western part of Norway.
What a number of motorbikes, (some with camera people!!), police, ambulances, cars with bicycles on the roofs, helicopter flying low, and all the people watching along the route. It is a huge event that goes over several days. Do take a look at: www.tourdesfjords.no
The weather was perfect!
Alexander Kristoff (from Stavanger) won, as he also did in 2014.
Last year it was Marco Haller (from Austria) who won.
They are both representing Team Kathusha from Russia.
