Ah, I see you snapped my wife's office building, as well as a few snaps of my hood. Missed a trick though, that Copenhagen Plaza hotel used to be the go to hotel for touring musicians and other folk of elevated status in the 70s & 80s. Inside there's a pillar listing all the famous guests that have stayed there over the years, Queen, David Bowie, Rolling Stones etc. Catch it next time, hope you enjoyed my dorp.

Hey cant see everything the first time. You do have a lovely dorp and thanks for all the tips and recommendations.

Hmm, Norway... interesting :-|
...but I spotted a link for Drakensberg/Bloem  at the bottom of the page :-)
Now your camera makes them equally beautiful for me who does not care too much about higher mountains and deeper seas, with a dozen waterfalls sprinkled around!
Thanks for sharing once again!

Beautiful scenery, what were the locals like? I ask as Bergen has a bit of a reputation for 'youth gone wrong' as in the Norwegian Black Metal scene.  Most were either fascist/later Odinist (so no change there) and very Nationalistic.  Any bad vibes amongst the Troll souvenirs?

To be honest i had to google 'Norwegian Black Metal'.
Not your average gospel singers I see.
All the locals we were in contact with were very pleasant people. The Chinese tourists on the other hand .........
Nope had nothing like that, but then again quite a few reasons why not:
1. We were not there long enough.
2. We preferred the country side scenery thing.
3. never were late on street, wayyy too old for the 'clubbing' scene and even if we did decide to go out we would probably have sticked to the touristy places and wont look for a Metal club to spend our precious Rands.

I also see that the Black Metal thing peaked in the 90's, not saying it does not exist any more since Norway seems to be the Metal capitol of the world.

Beautiful

I really need to go some time.  I tend to gravitate towards Germany at the moment as it seems to suit me as a destination (as soon as I walk out of Hamburg airport I'm back in the groove).  My holidays are city affairs with as much graffiti, modern art and history as I can manage to fit in along with visits to classic venues/clubs and record shops (sad, but it is what I enjoy).  Berlin Kreuzberg SO36 was one that I finally got off the tick list a few years ago, as well as the Indra and Grosse Freiheit 36 (used to be the Kaiserkeller).
