Bergen

(Remember to click on the photos for closer view.)

Rosenkrantz Tower







Bryggen, UNESCO site



Harbor




Hand-carved window treatment.


View from ship's docking area.


It started to rain, so I asked a taxi to return me to the ship, 1/2 mile away. (I wasn't happy with the $35.00 USD equivalent charge!)

The sculpted window is absolutely terrific. The painted houses are still attractive despite the grey sky. very nice Margaret! DeeBee :)

Lovely trip, the taxi driver's sassy go, preceded by a lot of money that distance, anyway. Like Dee I like these windows with these wood carvings are beautiful. Regards.

$35 for half a mile. Thats a bit of a ripoff. Looks like a very interesting place with tipical European architecture.
