Yanks in Trondheim

YIT (Yanks in Trondheim) had a picnic this weekend at Nedre Leirfossen, a park on the south end of town near a dam. We'd never been to this park today and it was excellent. Grills, playground equipment, a dock and a boardwalk along the river, coupled with a beautiful view of the river and the dam. We ate, played, made giant bubbles, and learned ballroom dances that Maggie brought back from Vienna. Nedre Leirfossen: good place for a picnic.

An amusing warning sign at Nedre Leirfossen. Run little red person, run!

Lian Restaurant

Our office had a end-of-the-year gathering at Lian Restaurant with two other organziations. We socialized and presented topics of common interest to each other. The resaurant/conference center is pretty amazing. It's in Byåsen, near to the skiing area where the kids have their lessons every winter. The view from the building is outstanding, overlooking a valley, a lake, and all of Trondheim. It's remarkable that this little gem is tucked away right in town in a place I never would have guessed.
