ABC Wednesday "L" for Lillehammer Norway
Click to enlarge and pay attention to the roof of the restaurant!
July 2005, Norway, we spent our summer holiday with four cousins at our Norwegian cousin's not far from Lillehammer. Of course Lysgårdsbakkene was on our programme. We had a lovely "Kaffe" there. The ski jump of Lysgårdsbakkene was used for the Olympic Winter Games in 1994. Ski jumps are always an impressive sight for us Dutchies.
When the construction of the Lysgårdsbakkene jumping hills started in 1992, the hills had to be moved some meters north so that the American broadcaster CBS could get the best pictures available from their pre-chosen location.
A house in Lillehammer and something we don't have in the Netherlands, a decorated drain cover!

Next week I hope to edit a post about Maihaugen, an Open Air Museum in Lillehammer.
