This is the last travel picspam for a while I promise. I was there to deliver a lecture on Verifying Autonomous Ethical Systems to Matryoshka's Machine Ethics class.

I was very charmed by the hotel which the University booked me into. A lot more character than your average hotel and there were complementary brownies

This was the hall outside my room.

The room itself.

On the second day Matryoshka took me sight-seeing in the pouring rain (I gather Bergen's weather is much like Manchester')

The old hanseatic quarter.

We then went up the funicular railway in order to admire the spectacular views of Bergen from the top.

As you will observe, it was snowing by this point.

However, three hours later when I departed for the airport, the sun had come out.

Thank you for the photos of somewhere I'd heard of, but never seen pictures of before.

Yep, I can see the resemblance to Manchester!

Same reason, I think - it sits exactly at the point where warm air from the sea hits a set of hills.

TBH, I don't know. I think at the time I vaguely thought "ah vikings!" but given we were looking at Hanseatic League warehouses that seems unlikely in retrospect.

We were both pretty damp by that point and the rain discouraged curiosity.
