We were only in port for about 8 hours today and got on a bus almost immediately. All the bus drivers were women which was different from everywhere else that we have been this trip. The highlight of the day was Gustav Vigelands’s stone, iron and bronze statues in a park that was quite long. Like most of the cathedral architects and such, Gustav did not live to see the park finished.
Debby, Suzy and I commented that this kind of public display would never happen in the US and that it was sad. The presentation was celebrating live from young to old and captured moments from most of our lives. And there was a story for each statue, some of which I suspect would not be allowed by Windows Live Spaces to be posted on this blog.
We ended the tour at the Viking Museum with three actual ships, sleds, and other artifacts. It was hard to hear our tour guide because the place was so packed. As was the park, these places had many tourist and people from Norway too.
We are now enroute to our final destination from whence we started, Copenhagen. I’ve down loaded over a thousand photos to Debby’s thumb drive for her to take home. Hey, I wonder if I can get Suzy to pack my bags? ;o)
