Ok, I'm back. Tempting to let the images speak for themselves.
Here's a Norwegian road sign, linking to the Silda Jazz website. Regret did not see real elk, despite impromptu seven-hour bus journey through mountains to alternative airport when our flight home was cancelled. Fallow deer, though, I think it was, and what might have been a kestrel. Also much herring (deceased).
I met up with some acquaintances from way back, the ever-chipper Jive Aces, who really know how to put on a show. Someone thought it would be a good idea to take a photo. We're the ones not in yellow.
I'll return to wine and related matters when I'm fully recovered from the rigours of the trip back to Ireland. However, here's a link to the site of the Norwegian wine monopoly, which "has had an exciting and engrossing history".
