Not So Wordless Wednesday: Norway #4



The oldest part of Bergen, called Bryggen, taken from our hotel.  Bryggen was once the center of all the fishing trade in the area.  While fire ravaged the old wooden structures in 1702, the foundations from the 12th century still exist.  If you look at these little house just right, they are slightly crooked, slightly leaning...like they might topple over if a strong wind comes along.

Stay tuned next week for a closer look...

Very beautiful and sort of haunting. Never dreamed Bergen looked like that!

I love this photo! All those houses look tucked up next to each other so closely. Very picturesque.
