A quiet morning at Vågen, near the fish market, which you can see in front of the big office building.
From time to time the water goes over the edge, so we have a small flood that can sometimes end up inside some of the old buildings along the harbor.
Rain and quite windy today.
I am off to the cinema soon to see " Les Miserables"!:)

YRSA SIGURDARDOTTIR, is an Icelandic writer, of both crime-novels and children fiction.
I met her, as well as other crime writers, tonight at a meeting arranged by the publisher.
Her books have been translated in to 34 languages.
So this is the book I will start reading as soon as I have finished the book I am currently reading.
What are YOU reading at the moment?

There are still 5 Norwegian people missing from the terror attack in Algeria.
Statoil, the Norwegian leading energy company in oil and gas production, has it´s headquarters here in Stavanger.
This is Helge Lund, the director, who gave a press conference this evening.
( As did the PM and foreign minister too.)
The media are following up, and we have news nearly all the time.
Some other countries have the same problem.
Let us hope that the missing people will be found!

Are you good at finding out what kind of job people do, if they don`t have a uniform or a sign that tells you about it?
Can you spot a dentist, a vet, shopkeeper or a car salesman??
Today I met Mr. Sævland, who is a taxi driver.
He was a friendly guy who said yes straight away to being todays model.
It is years since I have seen any taxi drivers wearing a hat. Looks smart!
Anyway, I have to say that the most service minded taxi drivers I ever met, were in Japan!
Stavanger is probably no better or worse than other cities in Europe.
