Back in Bergen

Back in Bergen we did the "tourist" thing and went on a train ride to see the city.
Bergen is a very interesting place with the "Bryggen" area being the most interesting. This area build in 1700 is chosen by UNESCO. as a world heritage site. The buildings are leaning every which way. They have a very unique way to keep them standing. They are in the process of restoring them. This will cost millions of dollars.

Later today we will leave Bergen and start on the north sea crossing which will take about 70 hours. The weather looks reasonable and we will make a pit stop in Denmark.
