Greek and Spanish.

















No Greek restaurant anymore, nor Spanish.
The Spanish one I only visited once, the Greek, more often a few years back.
The best thing was the Sunday Lunch Buffet.
That I miss from time to time.

Cancer research



















(Saturday's posting, just a bit late.)

Landscape.... as you see it south of Stavanger.
The pink and blue  is a reminder of cancer research, that farmers support.
Probably a cause that many of us will get in touch with one way or the other.

A nice fish soup.





















Today we were four ex-colleagues meeting up
for lunch.
I had a nice fish soup, and that was a good choice and very tasty.

Morning has broken...














A house next to the runway.
An early morning flight.
And as you see MORE SNOW today.

No PIGS in Stavanger???

















Stavanger has more rain than snow.

Still we have a few days every year when it is chaos with ice, snow and lots of slippery roads.
We have a couple of choices of what type of winter wheels we should use on our cars.
If you are driving in to Stavanger or just through the city, heading north or south, and you have studded tyres,  you have to pay for a day pass or an annual fee to cover the new rules that forbid the use of "studded tyres" (or "piggdekk" as we call them) in Stavanger.

PIGG is STUD in English, and NOT A PIG.

Looking at the sign, it looks like we don't allow PIGS in Stavanger

Sounds funny, not only for foreigners, but also for us living here.
It looks like for the web address, someone has freely translated pigg-fri (stud free) into pig-free?

So today there were paw prints to see on the walk in the woods.

Here is a glimpse of the plastic tree at the airport, ready to be put away for the next 11 months.

Radisson Blue Atlantic Hotel





















This hotel has had an upgrade that has been going on for some months.
I hope to take a look inside soon.
I just call it the Atlantic Hotel, but the correct name is: Radisson Blue Atlantic Hotel.
It was THE HOTEL in Stavanger for many many years.

Rain rain rain....


















After the snow we had RAIN again.
So it is time to put on the Wellingtons...

Happy New Year!




















Happy New Year!
It is raining outside, and the snow from Saturday's walk, has probably soon all melted.
I just wanted to show you the pretty tree someone had decorated in the woods.

Explore new places and have a fun and happy 2018!
