Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture
The name of the location in the quiz photo means "banquet hall" in old Norwegian language.
Its about 67 degrees north latitude.
the only "hall" i know from the norse mythology is Valhalla or Valhöll in old norse... but it rather means "hall of the slain" than "banquet hall"...
i have now idea what seaduction is looking for, but i found very interesting information about a town called "Saltstraumen" around the mentioned latitude of 67° N...
The Saltstraumen has the strongest tidal current in the world. Up to 400,000,000 cubic metres (520,000,000 cu yd) of seawater forces its way through a 3-kilometre (1.9 mi) long and 150-metre (490 ft) wide strait every six hours, with water speeds reaching 22 knots (41 km/h; 25 mph).
22 kts of tidal current... holy crab!
