Another Quick Vacation Note

The trip from Bergen to Kirkenes on Hurtigruten's MS Lofoten was magnificent. I do love a working ship. There were only a couple of other Americans on board, by the way. This type of voyage is not for everyone, e.g. no stabilizers, tiny cabin, but the scenery was incredible and the food surprisingly good.

There was even one spectacular aurora display. Now I am in Oslo, where I went to the Fram Museum and Kon Tiki Museum yesterday. Today's plan is the Munch Museum followed by Viggelund Sculpture Park and checking out a couple of yarn shops. I fly home (well, EWR) tomorrow.
