This a picture of Stavanger Cathedral which is about 20 minutes from where we live. It was originally built in 1125 and then rebuilt after a fire in 1275. I ran across this picture locally and thought it was an exceptional photo of a really old church and so I though some might find it interesting. The interior is also very nice with a lot of wood carvings and stained glass windows, one of which some vandal broke about a week ago.

Mads Please let me know when you are coming. I would love to have you visit us if you can take the time. Of course I would appreciate an advance warning so I can get my workshop cleaned up, Lol.

Dave Just add an ‘r’ on the end. I have wanted to take some photos of at least one of the stavkirker, probably the one in Røldal which is the closest one to us.

Benji Let me know if you plan to make the trip. It would be great to have you visit us. If you don’t come to our part of the country, let me know anyway and I will try to suggest some ‘must see’ places.
