Stavenger, Norway

Some of the old wooden buildings still survive in old Stavenger. Most of Norway's population lives in the Southern region because its warmer. Its not warm at all as we are all still wearing jackets and its the end of July. The coast of Norway is rugged and jagged that building infrastructure is a huge feat. There is no train between Stavenger and Bergen, so the buses has to take over. It was an interesting 5 and 1/2 hours, we had 2 ferry crossings where the bus had to be loaded onto a ferry with other vehicles. We had to leave the bus and sit in the passengers' lounge then get on the bus again as we approached the end of the water. It was a beautiful and scenic ride. I'm glad there wasn't a train. I'm still trying to figure out how to fill my time here in Stavenger. My time in Norway is approaching he end.
