Norwegians love to trek their mountains to find the calm and serene lakes atop.

Checked into this cozy hotel
Met up with Ram and Vishnu that live in Kristiansand who came by to see me with their cute little one yr old Manu. At 7.00 I had to bid my adieus and head to a Norwegian dinner. Øyvind the organizer of the seminar came to pick us up and walked us to the restaurant in the old town area. He showed us the venue of the seminar next day, in a yellow building across the water.
The Restaurant had a very marine theme with lots of boats and anchors scattered all around. The menu too was delish.
Baked Scallops with honey and lemon , served with sour cream for starters
I only realized in the picture that the main dish was arranged in the form of a boat
After late wining and dining we headed back to the hotel at about 12 AM to catch some sleep before the day dawned.
Time well spent!!! To many interesting people from the commerce, county and business groups in Kristiansand , India - the future is here, was emphasized and re-emphasized. Each speaker dealt with different aspects that gave a totality to the topic.
A sneak peak into my presentation
Øyvind was courteous to drive us around the town before he brought us to lunch at this Indian restaurant – Mother India, where we met up with other prominent people of the town.
For the first time I tasted something called – Mango chicken curry - a very tasty dish. and never heard of it before . Strolled again for a couple of hours on the cobbled pathways
before heading back home just in time for the ROYAL WEDDING :-).
