The photo today comes from Svolvaer, the ‘capital’ of the Lofoten Islands in Norway. About 4500 people live in this town which was built on cod fishing. Nowadays, summer tourism is very important with about 200 000 tourists visiting each year. It is served by ferries from Bodo on the mainland and also by a regional airport. Day trips operate from here to the nearby Trollfjord and also Rafsundet. Being Norway, everything is VERY VERY expensive, making a holiday here a costly trip. When a Norwegian is asked to name something that is cheap in Norway, they usually struggle to think of ANYTHING that is cheap. The words ‘cheap’ and ‘Norway’ do not go together.
and another photo…..the very small village of Urke in the Norwegian fjords. Both of the photos today were taken as jpegs using the Fuji X-T10 camera.

What a wonderful story in the news in the last few days….in Wigan, England before the annual ‘World Pie Eating championships’, a meat pie was launched into space to see if the effects of space would make it easier to eat. The pie was attached to a weather balloon, and reached almost 100 000 feet. What is nice is that the launch site was outside a local pub in Wigan. The makers of the pie were happy to see their pies tested in space, and the ‘experiment’ was monitored using a camera attached to the balloon. During the World Pie Eating championships in 2007, the competition was almost ruined when a dog belonging to one of the competitors ate 20 pies and damaged another 10 pies before the competition started, thus leaving the competion short of pies.
