More Photos (II) of Bergen, Norway (July 7-9, 2008)

The Floibana, Bergen's funicular, runs up to the top of Mount Floyen from downtown
Sally and my dad look out over the city from the viewing platform at the top of the Floibana
The view from Mount Floyen of Bergen and the surrounding areas
A closer view of Bryggen. The colorful wooden buildings were originally constructed in the 14th century by German Hanseatic merchants. They were destroyed in a fire in 1702 but were soon rebuilt and are now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The very crooked walls of Bryggen
Small and large: a tiny passenger ferry skirts around a massive cruise ship in Bergen harbor
