It is holiday time and quiet days. Apart from the most touristy areas of the city, the streets are just about empty and there is noticably fewer cars on the road. In the country there are more boats on the fjord, and cabins have doors and windows open in opposition to many residential houses that are closed and void of people for few days or weeks. It is quite unusal for me to have a holiday experience from that side. For many years I worked in the tourist industry and was at "the receiving" end of the touriststream. When July was at its busiest I used to think: "It is an interlude. In a few weeks we are back to normal."
