Say, Max, I always thought it was, "What a day, a year, a LIFE it is." Parallelism and all that rot, you know! Maybe I just couldn't hear through the Brit accent. Sounds like fun going to Norway. On somebody else's dime, to boot!

I'm not sure about employment (I didn't think to ask) ... but the engineering department building itself is incredible ...

Yes -- we went to both museums -- I cannot believe that they set off for a "3 to 5 year voyage" in this boat -- as you say the boat itself is an incredible feat of engineering ... but to spend 5 years of your life on it with only a bunch of guys and a lot of books (600 I believe) but no DVDs or TV (and no hot showers)...

When you're at the Kon-Tiki museum you're next door to the Fram museuum, which is worth a visit. Fram is the ship used by Fritjof Nansen to come close to the North Pole and by Roald Amundsen to get to the South Pole (with snowsleds and skis). It's a feat of engineering.

Someone commented on a previous blog that if I was traveling across Norway in the winter then I wouldn't need color film because everything was black and white and gray... ...it certainly seems that way in these pictures ... I seem to recall a hint of green, but that could be my brain "filling in the details"... But it was great to look at...

Max, If it wasn't for a hit of clear skies, I would have assumed that you took your pictures in black and white setting. ;-) Was that gray all around? Are those pine trees that gray looking? what happened to green foliage (any)?
