The Norwegian summer seems to be long gone.. That’s too bad, as the fjords and valleys looks better in sunshine than in rain. This trip was made to one of Norway’s most famous fjords, where an huge old sanatorium was built in 1902, when tuberculosis was ravaging Europe. The building itself was built 500 meters above the sea. The placement was chosen because of the beneficial climate and the importance of hydro-power. This is also the most expensive building in Norway, right after the opera house in Oslo.
