If you are in Norway you will have felt the rain, seen the news on TV, or read the newspapers.
Lots of places have FLOODS, and seeing houses as well as cars, moving, carried along by rivers, is not very nice!!
Here in Stavanger we have had a lot of rain but no flooding. But today, we have had a glimpse of sunshine.
This is an image taken near the Cathedral.

The author Knut F. Thoresen gave a speech today at the library about his new book. ("Til Norge for å dø"). It is about the life as Serbian slaves in German camps around in Norway during World War 2. (More than 4000 of them, and many of them died here in Norway!)
I had an image of Norwegians who gave food and helped some of the prisoners escape to Sweden.
That is what we learned at school (a long time ago).
But here I found myself hearing about Norwegians who worked for the Germans, as prison guards!
I left (for work) before the whole thing was finished, with a question about what we actually have learned from history..... Watching the news on TV really makes me wonder.

This is an image taken a week back.
It was sunny and I just stopped for a few minutes and had a look....
Today it is completely different ..... it has been raining non stop!
And there is more rain to come.
If you wonder what "ei me alt" is (on the umbrella), then I can tell you that the guy (in blue) is selling hotdogs, and the phrase is typical dialect, and means a hotdog served with all types of extras (one with everything).

The Spanish fashion store, ZARA, is being built here, just where the huge crane is.
It has taken time.... and work will continue for quite a bit longer.
Well, I think it will be a popular place for shopping, and increase the number of people walking up and down the whole of Kirkegaten / The Churchroad.

Yesterday afternoon at Arnageren, the place outside the Culture House.
This week the schools have had their Autumn Holiday, so many families have gone away for a week.
It is quiet, with fewer people and less traffic around.
On my blog page, you can see the same tree in different seasons, by clicking on the label under the text.
GOD HELG! Happy weekend!

I guess the passengers on "Funchal" were having a good time , even with the rain and wind.
A nice old cruise ship, old-fashioned looking, but when I googled the name, I saw that it has had a long and interesting life, different owners and plenty of new things to replace the old, including the engine.

If you go to the airport there are a lot of roadwork going on just outside the terminal building.
So you have to go through the parking area. But don't worry about paying if you are just dropping someone off at the airport, or picking someone up, it is free for 15 minutes.
You can KISS & KISS & KISS .....
