tourist in Norway

Yesterday and today I've been playing tourist in the Nordlands near Bodø.

The Saltstrumen is the largest tidal maelstrom in the world and I was able to observe it with the tide going in during the afternoon, and then from the air much later in the day with the tide going out.

Today we went to a folk museum called Kjerringgøy, where I got to see many things made in the century before last. To this place, every child in the 4th grade from every school in the district comes to make flat bread during the school year. It was a trading center where fishermen and farmers would trade their catch and their produce for manufactured goods.

Every good trading post would have a blacksmith shop as is shown in the photo at left.

Make, fix and create...
