Norway SE: Camp by the trout pond / Ørrettjernet

Camp by Stutefoss - the trout pond / ørrettjernet i Spydeberg
A small pond in the middle of the forest in a landscape with small villages, farms, forests and lakes, less than an hour from our capitol: Oslo.
A popular place to visit where the anglers may do their catch of some fine trouts - or just sit there by the waterside and enjoy the fair day - as the angler below....

Video: Fantasia - The chez Ali Show in Marrakech.

An incredible tourist trap is this amusement place outside Marrakech.
In spite of the adventure like buildings and the many mucicians etc who entertain the show itself is quite boring, done in a terrible light setting accompanied by very high Morrocan music. (2/6).
...but the obligatorie food served in big tent like structures was surprisingly good - even served with absolute no service attitude at all :-)
