Sui-Rui, Lårdalstigen
Norway

Localy this place is called Sui-Rui as apposed to Ni-Rui, the place where the Rui girls lived, whitch is a little lower then Eidsborg from here. As you can see, this place faces south and catches sun. This is a very stony place but the soil between the rocks is both deep and fertile. People have lived here from long ago, the last being Jon and Tårånd Rui. Jon was born in Gransherad in 1841, and died here in 1923. Tårånd, who lived from 1855 to 1938, came from Odden by the powerstation at Dalen. They have many decendants including their son Eivind and his wive Gro who were the last to live here. Rui belonged to Mykjejord farm but became a seperate property in 1939. In 1952 it was sold to Raundal farm. By the side of the stream to the south of Rui you can see the remains of the water mill which stood here earlier.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
