Leaving Oslo for Trondheim did not mean leaving the rain behind, unfortunately. The train windows were constantly streaked with water, which may not hinder viewing too badly, it certainly restricts photography.

Normally, I don’t go for fish at restaurants. I can appreciate good fish, but my past experience has taught me that cooking fish perfectly involves a bit of art. Bacchus clearly has been practicing their art.
