    ... have a cafeteria open 24 hours a day. We can use that too but certainly don't need to. We are eating very well with a buffet breakfast and lunch then a 3 course set menu with set seating for dinner at night. Some of the food is a bit different for us. We have had reindeer stew, whale meat and lots of different seafood. There are plenty of salads and vegetables and a lot of lovely berry desserts.
    We were assigned a table with two ...

    ... 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.

    ... birds have depleted in their populations by 80% since the 1960s, due to depletion of capelin and herring fish stocks. These stocks have been improved over the past 20 years, but the bird life has not recovered. We met a lovely young fellow on board, Martin, who was one if our waiters, and he was telling us about his travel experiences. He has been travelling and working since 19 years old and he's now 29. He's spent most of his earlier working career in the armed forces in Sweden ...

    ... Latitude of Arctic circle is 66 degrees.
    We sailed in the Barents Sea for a long time, passing through and by towns by the names of:
    Vardo...could not stop here as it is right on the coast and it was just to rough and windy. On to Batsfjord, Norway's largest fishing village and Berlevag.
    In one of the bars there was a piano player, so we enjoyed him for an hour before dinner at 7pm. He sang all american songs, and was from UK. A glass of wine ...
