Tiny cramped room, but I suppose it's still decent value for an expensive town like Bergen. Good location relatively close to both the centre and the train station.

... is no menu; we are served a choice of three or five courses of whatever is caught (by Alf, he says) that day. Bob and I have three courses; a single scallop served with sea urchin, Jerusalem artichoke and fennel puree, pickled radish and watercress, followed by fish called tusk, a Norwegian variety of cod served topped with Bearnaise sauce along with potatoes, beets, and pesto and ending with rhubarb sorbet with yoghurt cream. We hear that the five ...
It's not so rainy but just as wet! I walk to see the university I was meant to have attended when I studied Scandinavian sociology and art and architecture. It looked nice. I probably should have gone instead of spending my entire time pretending we were in london super clubs in the cinders type nightclub Maximes, as confirmed by Veronica! Bergen has surprised me in that it has a lake and a castle! wow I must have only ever gone ...
