Here are a couple pictures from just outside my Uncle Warren's house. He lives in Tyssedal, north of Odda on the eastern side of the fjord, and the views are stunning. I'll try to flesh out the rest of the town as time goes on.

The first picture there is looking south along the fjord to Odda. Odda is at the very end of the fjord, where the rivers from the mountains come down to meet it. The harbor here is deep enough to accommodate cruisers and other deep ships, and at one time people used to come here often on vacation - back before technology ruined the world, and people actually enjoyed physical exercise.
I'm going to try to post every day from now on, the last few days being pretty full with getting situated and learning the lay of the land. Uncle Warren is quite a talker, and I'm more of a listener, so we get along pretty well. I'll probably move in to one of his apartments in the next few days, so will have more time to myself - at the moment I'm staying at his house and helping him organize some of his things. He has only recently arrived back from the US himself, and there are lots of things for him to deal with regarding bills and tenants.
