Aug. 8: Geiranger — Skei

From Geiranger, we drove to Skei, a small town with a very large hotel and one of the largest tourist stores we encountered on our trip. After another wonderful buffet lunch, Steve gave a wonderful seminar on the economics of rural Norway in the brand new conference room at the Skei Hotel.

In the late afternoon, we drove along Lake Jølster to Astrupstunet, the former home of the Norwegian artist Nikolai Astrup and now his gallery and museum.

We had an excellent local guide there, making this stop one of the highlights of the trip for everyone.
