A CROCODILE and two men were also seen next to the red tree.
The men, FRODE and ALKHA are working for the same company, and maintaining the city, keeping it clean and pretty.
The crocodile is one of several "animals" from the theme park,
with african animals, at the playground near Stavanger Aftenblad, our biggest local newspaper.

There are quite a number of office and shops areas that are empty and ready for new people to take over..... So if you have plans for something new, and money as well as the spirit for something new for next year...... you could start out with looking around Søregaten where there are places on both sides of the little road....
I seriously think it is sad to see this happening in Stavanger.
Is it the same in many other cities?

Even the tower at the airport has been decorated for Christmas.
I think it had even more lightbulbs around the windows than this, but perhaps it was taken down or fell off when we had some storms.
Anyway, today is the big day for people who are traveling back after visiting friends and family. Some have taken tomorrow off from work, and some will not go back home until after the new year.

In Norway the presents were opened yesterday evening (and after that, Father Christmas went to England.... we were told as children).
Stavanger is very very quiet.......
I hope you are having a good Christmas holiday wherever you are.
The statue is one of my favorites in Stavanger. and is in the beginning of the narrow little road Nygaten.

A couple of months back the company Troll finished their new 9200m2 office building.
It is based in the Hinna Park area, close to several other big companies, the train station, a big residential area, as well as several restaurants and shops.
I like the style of it and the different materials on the facade, as well as the splash of bright colors around some of the windows compared to many other buildings.

If you are watching TV and are interested in SPORT,
you might have seen the European Championship in curling, that are taking place in Stavanger theses days?
This is Thomas Ulsrud.
He is the skipper of the Norwegian men`s Curling Team.
The Norwegian players are easy to spot because of their red, white and blue trousers.
Thanks to the company who invited some customers to this event.
They also provided food and drinks, as well as information about their company.
And not least, for the game itself. I have never seen curling LIVE before.

Some of the pupils at the Rudolf Steiner school had setup an Italian Cafe, with quality food and nice proper Italian coffee. I asked if they learned Italian at school, but no, they learned Spanish.
Anyway, they are off to ROME on a school trip soon. Lucky young people!
The lunch was yummy and full of garlic. Hopefully they got their travel budget in the plus after the Xmas market at the weekend.

One year ago the photographer Henriette Framnes Time shot 220 portraits of men and their mustaches.
You will find more info. and also WHY she did it on: www.bookofmovember.com
Some of the photos are now placed out on the old market place in front of the cathedral.
