I was passing H&M and it just struck me that perhaps the whole of Europe have the same window decorations this autumn? One day i will treat myself to something new and nice.....

The landscape along the fjords is varied. It can be just the fjords and mountains, but as in todays photo you can see trees and small wooden holiday cottages. Some have been in families for years and some are brand new. In any case they are wonderful places to take a quiet and relaxing break from the city.

Some of the small narrow streets in the centre of Stavanger, have a surface that is not always good for a brisk walk on high heals!:-)

Yesterday evening I went with a friend to the annual local "Fashion awards show". It was an evening full of women who many probably had something to do with the fashion industry or just were out to take a look....

I have to admit that I do NOT have much patience for waiting.
In this office there was absolutely no one ..... I thought they had all gone for an early lunch.
While waiting, at least I saw something new, - and quite artistic, that caught my eye!

Early morning. To the right is part of the Oil Museum and in the background you see the bridge where cars and busses are on their way to and from Hundvaag, a nearby suburb of the city.

What a colorful and happy face..... (I asked his mother if I was allowed to take a photo and put it out on the site. Unfortunately, I forgot to ask about his name. Sorry about that.)
I met them in the park near the Cathedral, where the organization “Byen” (”the City”) run the annual “Autumn Market”.
Pony riding, some animals to take a look at, homemade food and various articles for sale.
Hopefully lots of people will come and take a look over the next few days!;-)
Anyway, the morning started with rain showers, hale and thunder, than a bit of sunshine and more rain..... I seriously have to put on warmer clothes!!

This is Norwegian “Skoleboller”, or in English “ School Buns” filled with custard and topped with coconut and a confectioner’s sugar glaze.
It is a type of pastry you can get at any bakery, and many grocery stores as well as some ferry kiosks and cafés. Kids make them at school and parents who take the time, make them at home.
They are very popular, especially for school kids......

Yesterday when I was out photographing traffic and rain, I met these two young students,
SALMAN (who has started studying computer science) and ASAD (who is in his 2nd. year with construction engineering). They are both from Punjab in Pakistan, but did not know each other until they met here where they are University students, and living at the same student home. Good luck with your studies,- and I also hope you have a really good time here in Stavanger!

Last year everyone in Stavanger could get A FREE BOOK, and that was a big success.
So the library together with the Culturhouse, the trade union and a big business organization have this year printed the book ”Fortuna” by our famous writer Alexander L. Kielland ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Kielland )
Some got it by post, but most people picked it up from the library as this young woman is doing.
I think it is a great idea! Perhaps something to do in your city too??
