    Stavanger and the North Sea Oil Industry

    May 3, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We arrived in Stavanger, had breakfast and started the walking tour of the town and the oil museum. Our guide was named Ourania Papadimitriou, and she was fantastic. Her husband works in the oil industry and must stay on a ship for two weeks at a time. Glenda saw an Elizabeth Arden store at the beginning of our walk. When we finished we went trying to find it again. Eventually we succeeded. I went on to photograph the cathedral. Then we realized that to get the product she wanted requires a doctor’s prescription. We came back to the ship, had lunch, and took some photographs. I took a short nap before a lecture given by Dr. McCann on the Hanseatic league. We ate at Manfredi restaurant. Our waiter Henry convinced me to get a steak I didn't want, and I ate entirely too much. We went to the atrium to hear the music of Olga, and entered into conversation with Tom and Judy from Bakersfield California.Read more
