We are leaving Stavanger, Norway after five days in this Scandinavian country. We flew into Oslo, Norway after a 12 hours flight from Seattle With brief change of aircraft in Iceland. We have suffered more intense symptoms of jet lag because we started our trip in the afternoon and the eight hour time zone difference and 20 hours of daylight kept us waking up for several nights. However all is now well and (yawn) back to normal.
Bergen is town about the size of Boise with a funicular rail to the top of one of the 9 hills surrounding the harbor. There was periodic light rain while we were there but overall, the weather has been lovely. The best of the year the locals say. They had 26 straight days of rain before we arrived!
We left Bergen with the intent of staying the night at Eifjord. However high winds diverted us to Stavanger, a one time fishing village for herring, sardines and cod is now the center of North Sea petroleum production
