    I should add that as well as updating the moving house saga, I had a thoroughly enjoyable time wandering around this fascinating neighbourhood, which, had it not been for Nichu’s reports, I might not otherwise have discovered. I may well get around to posting photos of streets and houses and building details in Seagull’s Trondheim thread eventually .

      Me thinks Lady C has been "house-hunting" in Trondheim....

        Appreciate your pictures very much Cecilia, and look forward to the next part.

        When you live in a town, you can pass buildings and other objects without noticing.
        It takes someone from outside to really open the locals eyes to what is in your neighbourhood.

        Slightly off topic, but happened in Trondheim:

        Tuesday morning at 0319 am, I became a first time grandfather to a little boy of 50cm and 3900 grams.

        Times have changed since my daughter was born.
        Today, a few hours after the birth, mother and child are whisked away from the "Mother and Child" clinic and into a hotel that is part of the hospital.
        Here, the father can join and live with them for 3-4 days before going home.
        In a large room, with a large bathroom and every other necessarities, and of course professional personell present.
        A fee of 250 Kroner pr day for the father includes 4 meals served either in the hotels restaurant or in the room.

        A big change from where my daughter lived her first days, in a four-bed maternity ward.

            PHOTOS, Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            We are accumulating a passle of kiddies here at CVF. (southernism, forgive me. "passle" is like " a whole mess'uv", slightly akin to a gander of geese, pride of lions, and murder of crows.) Kristian, Willow, now Nichu's grandson.......

            How GRAND!!!!!!!!!!!

              "Slightly off topic..." ?
              Don't think so, Nichu.
              A birth in Trondheim leading to you being a grandfather in the same city most certainly fits the headline of this thread...
              Congratulation to you!!!!

                  Thanks very much for the response to me becoming a grandfather.

                  A picture of the little one, well asleep, and about 36 hours old:



                  Must continue with a wedding picture of the happy parents.
                  Staying with friends, they wed on a beach in Hawaii.

                        Thank you for the comments!

                        And as the Monty Python gang says:
                        Over to something completely different.

                        The aforementioned orienteering championships are sponsoring live music at Torvet.
                        I will soon go there to see Betty Johnsen, (originally from Bergen) do her show, with her Betty Big Boom Band.
                        A 46 year old punk/rock/soul artist.
                        Haven't seen her for 20 years, but hope her performance will be as memorable as before.

                        Later this evening some of my friends will play at Kafe Skuret.
                        Beatles/tunes from the 70's/ and Irish folk music are on their repertoire.
                        And in a maritime setting.

                          Newly minted Grandfather, Retired and Punk Rock???
                          What happened to the Rocking chair????

                          Congratulation with your new status as Grandfather!!!!
                          I'm still waiting for one of my sons to reproduce, but they are not so inclined, it seams.

                          Have to rely upon a God Daughter, who will give birth to a son in November, but it is not entirely the same to be God Grandfather.

                            For one reason - or another, this is the only sharp photo I got from Betty Big's performance.
                            Scene show, not as before, but the music has improved a lot.



                            And I hope the rocking chair is still some years away from me.

                              Trondheim Port has been up in a helicopter and taken some new (the last ones in this series) increadible shots of Trondheim from the air:

                              Take a look at those that were taken in August 2010, and tell me that Trondheim is not a beautiful city.
