Fjords and Bergen

In light of the Oslo shooting, I will try to keep the last Norway post from sounding too flippant. As I mentioned in my previous entry, I found the Sognefjord impactual. I really couldn’t get close enough to those fjords. The way the slightest movement of the clouds or the sun made them so very different, so alive. If you ever have the chance to see the fjords, you must do it. Don’t stay in the cities in Norway! I pine.

Bergen was cute as a button. We were only there a couple of days, and we hit an art museum with a fairly modern focus. Our hotel was right on the harbor, so we walked right off the fjord cruise and into the front door of our hotel, making up in some ways for our suburban Oslo hotel. We walked around the city and took in the atmosphere.

I have to admit at this point of the trip, I knew Neal had died, and that weighed upon me heavily. Catrina was really wonderful. She had no reason to expect I would turn into a stick-in-the-mud this trip, but I did, given grief and all. It was great traveling with her.

I know, you all want pictures. I’ll see what I can do. They’re still on my camera. This week Bryon and I get ready for AnimeIowa, I have all my writing to sneak in, and I’m working. But as soon as I can, you’ll see them.

Tomorrow, maybe, some conversation about Captain America.
