We stayed at a friend's apartment for the past two days in Bakklandet. Many of our friends are at their hyttes (cabins) this week because of winter vacation, so we called this our byhytte, or city cabin. Being close to downtown made it easy to walk around to find restaurants and do a bit of shopping. One evening we went to a rather non-Norwegian restaurant, Big Horn Restaurant, and had ribs and steaks. Fantastic! Expensive, but every once in a while it's worth it.
Evenings we did puzzles and enjoyed the fire of a woodburning stove.
