strong arm of the law
I finished my work with a little time to spare, so instead of heading back to the airport, I asked the taxi to take me back to the harbour.
As luck would have it, there was a rock band playing, so what could I do but stop and listen?
It was a bluesy and pretty good band of Norwegians all in a kind of black get-up. Hmm, then I noticed the checkerboard around their legs. And then I noticed the insignia on their shoulders. It was the local police force blues band - de Politie? no they were (I think) called "Strong arm of the law" (My Norwegian language skills are minimal). See the two Politie fans taking a few minutes from their patrol duties!
And the band rocked.
Look carefully in the video and you can see behind the stage, where a huge cruise ship is parked in the harbour. I stayed for the whole enjoyable set, before seeking a lazy cafe along the waterfront.
