    Ålesund city council yesterday evening voted for "Bypakken"..., to finance building of new infrastructure with toll roads around the city. People at Ellingsøy (among others) ar not at all happy, because they have already payed toll for several years to be connected to the mainland... Not read about it myself, just heard it on the news while I drove to work half an hour ago..

      Mid-summer is here and the bonfire at Slinningen in Aalesund is under construction: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/alesundogo...cle9830954.ece

      20 m. high so far and "growing".

      For the many with a background from Aalesund, here is film made about last year's Slinningsbaal: http://vimeo.com/86454552

          My thoughts to; looks like ants building their nest.
          All this so they can burn it down in few hours.

        More Aalesund nostalgia. The weather.

              Sad news for those who like to take the steps to/from Fjellstua: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/alesundogo...le10016321.ece
              But new and improved steps will be there sometime in the future. I.A.

              Meanwhile there are alternatives. (See posts 446 & 461)

                ...and while reading the above link, I got distracted by other Ålesund news stories…

                This one should please pakarang:

                  If they can build a large wooden boat in Kristiansund then they can in Aalesund as well: http://www.smp.no/incoming/article10015091.ece

                  You can even follow the progress directly from anywhere in the world here: http://kamera.smp.no/services/kamera...bmenu=3&type=1

                  Fact checking is not a high priority on smp.no apparently.
                  Here is a picture from the article:


                  The text under this picture reads like this; "Bankskøyter liggende i Ålesundet, dagens Brosund. Devoldbrygga (dagens Brosundet hotell) til høyre i bildet. FOTO: DIGITALMUSEUM.NO"

                  The picture is obviously from before the big fire in 1904 when all the buildings seen here burnt down. None is thus today's Brosundet hotel
