Hello again.





















Hello again.

The Danish nurse and her dog are still living in Norway.
I have a photo of them on the blog from August 2015.
Mollie is now 11 years old, and she was happy to be in town with Louise.

Nice meeting you again.

Radisson Blu Atlantic Hotel



















This is a glimpse from the lobby area at the newly renovated and upgraded Radisson Blu Atlantic Hotel.
It looks good, stylish and with beautiful details.
Great view over to the little lake, Breiavatnet, and the city park.

Enjoy your weekend!

Sporty woman!





















The snow has nearly all gone. It started raining yesterday evening and has not stopped.

Well, there are other things on the agenda up here in the north of Europe rather than whether or not it is snowing.

In South Korea we have a big Norwegian troop of winter sports people who will be representing the Nation in The Winter Olympics.

Newspapers are full of information and photos from tests they do, and here we see their faces all over, like here on the milk carton.

This is Marit Bjørgen,

Take a look here, to see what this strong lady has done so far.

Retro and vintage style.

















Today treasures from the 60's and 70's are very popular by young people.
Every HOME magazine shows retro items together with green plants.
Charity shops are doing well when giving their items a second chance in new homes.
This is a pattern that was common in many homes and cottages for decades.

Seen on a Sunday walk in town.

















On Sundays the city looks different. More quiet, too quiet some will say.
But the good thing is that it is possible to see things like this street art that normally is hidden behind parked cars.

Sayings by Ajax.





















Up in the air you can see "sayings" by Ajax (Andreas Jakobsen 1909-1995), who wrote stories using local dialect and wrote about Johanna and her brother Broremann.
Business people around the city centre have gone together and paid for more lights, that will light up some of the narrow streets.

Sunshine.





















Sunbeams and woollen socks...

Sunny and cold today.
