Day 133/366: Bryggen

This is one of the iconoclastic images from Bergen,  the city where I come from and reside. From Wikipedia: Bryggen (the wharf) has since 1979 been on the UNESCO list for World Cultural Heritage sitesThe city of Bergen was founded in 1070. The area of the present Bryggen constitutes the oldest part of the city. 
 
We spent the whole day in the city center, going to the library so the girls could pick out some more books to read, went to see an art exhibition that my youngest daughters' class had a part in as well as the Master exhibition of the students from Bergen art school. My youngest is really fascinated and interested in art and exhibitions, and loved the guided tour and all the interaction the kids got with the guide. 
 
Afterwards we wandered around a bit in the city as it was a fairly nice day. Some rain, but also sun in between. Further down at Bryggen the Farmer's market had their sale booths, and we sampled some of the goodies and bought a really tasty brown goat cheese.
