    ... at Oslo we have to collect baggage, clear customs and book the baggage again...unusual. Flight left on time at 6.00pm for the 2 hour flight further north. 5 past 8 at night and we're on the ground in board daylight in Kirkenes ( pronounced chyknez) airport...12 miles from town. Shuttle to our hotel and a buffet dinner was all that was on offer..very substandard according to my traveling companion (the hotel specialist critic). Now for the finances..... I ...

    ... find something to eat at the breakfast and lunch buffets. At this first lunch we are faced with economic reality as all drinks (including bottles of water) are on a fee basis.

    ... morning apparently, on the staff accommodation deck. Not a bad deal for the budget traveller! There were four guys dressed in traditional German carpentry gear, on a working holiday together - we called them the 4 amigos - great fun guys!! ( see photo) - Internet access on board ( although free) is very unreliable, even when in port, so best to tell family may be out of contact for a few days. - would have liked to spend more time in most towns and Jeff and I agree that will will ...

    ... fellow.
    Good Night Kirkenes!

    Kirkenes was the 2nd worst bombed city in WW2. It was demolished by the Germans, and the townsfolk hid in basements and mining tunnels. The town was rescued by the Russians, thus the folks here still hate the Germans, and like the Russians. There is free commerce between the Russians and the Norwegians up here and the russian fisherman actually bring their catches to be sold in Norway, rather in Murmansk where they have to pay ...
