Beer on The Bryggen.

In conditions like this I would normally retreat to a pub and relax with a beer. However in Norway beer is about 3 times the price it is in England. So a few more wet shots before I hide from the rain.
Its not too bad for the English tourists, we are used to plenty of rain, however I did feel pity for some tourists in "T shirts" and shorts. I had a conversation with an American couple who had been advised that they would only need a light jacket (they were booked on the Hurtigruten and were travelling up to "North Cape". Their travel adviser must have been a bit confused as to where north cape is.
The North Cape is often (mistakenly) referred to as the northernmost point of Europe, located at 71°10′21″N 25°47′04″E, about 2,102.3 kilometres (1,306.3 mi) from the North Pole. However, the neighbouring Knivskjellodden point, just to the west actually extends 1,457 metres (4,780 ft) further to the north.
