It's always nice to take a stroll around the annual food festival (Gladmat).
Ok, I have to say that there are too many stands looking too much like the previous years.
On the other hand that is perhaps what makes money and what people are looking for?
Anyway, today I really enjoyed seeing kids having a good time at the BLUE PLANET stand, where you can actually get to know more about what is in the sea.... and hold and feel some different species.
Still sunny, just a bit of drizzle in the air earlier today. Quite humid and unusual high temperatures.
Enjoy your Summer Evenings!

Street musicians are not all the same, some are entertainers, lively and happy, some are really sad, and the same with the music. Our narrow streets have more and more people coming from abroad who sing and play.
This group came from Novgorod in Russia.
Lots of people stopped and listened and had a glance at the unusual instrument on the left.

I met a real enthusiast today!
The Dutchman WIM, living in Sandnes, just south of Stavanger, was out with a fantastic combination motorcycle model, URAL (www.ural.com)
Wow, it must be great to drive it on such a beautiful day like today!
He told me about trips that he and his wife had taken, and soon they will be on another trip, heading towards Lillehammer.
He has been driving it out in deep snow as well as on gravel roads.
There are not many URAL owners in Norway, so I guess he will attract quite a bit of attention from bike enthusiasts when he is out.

Our biggest local newspaper, Stavanger Aftenblad, wrote about my blog today.

It has been another VERY HOT day, which is quite unusual.
Well it is going to last until Sunday, so we better get the most out of it.
MARTE (on the left) and BENEDICTE were out with Marthe's dogs tonight.
(Benedicte also has a dog but he was at home.)
They are enjoying their summer holiday, and in ten days time they will be off to a beautiful greek island.
Have a great time!

The man in the read anorak was busy talking in a language I did not understand, but I guess he was a guide telling a group of tourists about our city. They were standing in front of the statue of Alexander Kielland, a famous author, who has been standing here for many years, facing the harbor and the once lively marketplace (the marketplace has been much less active over the last few years).

Charlotte has just finished her university studies in marketing and Victoria had done the same with psychology. ( Both from Surrey / England.)
They were off to Amsterdam this afternoon to continue their 2 months trip around Europe.
Starting off by walking up PREKESTOLEN / The Pulpit Rock. I asked them what their plans were, and with a good sense of humor, a giggle and a laugh, they said that growing up and getting a job was on the agenda. (perhaps it was the other way around?) Anyway, wish you all the best! PS. Lots of rain here tonight, so you were lucky:)
