|After pilot training with Mike, Olav became a
helicopter pilot, flying to oil rigs off the coast
of Norway. He now leads a team of 100
pilots. This is as close as I hope I’ll
ever get to the rotor blade of a helicopter.
|Composer Edvard Grieg (Hall of the Mountain
King), is a Bergen native. This is an life
sized statue of him – no kidding! I guarantee
you will recognize this music:
|Olav and his lovely wife Karen took us
to the Flobanen funicular – 320 meters up
to see Norways largest seaport, and
the Norwegian navy base.
|Bryggen is a charming wharf-side town.
The classic wooden buildings lean
every which way – the insides are
like a fun house of slants and angles.
