|Last night's dinner at Stortovets Gjaestgiveri, a restaurant since 1700 -- my halibut had a topping of fish roe,|
Len had a splendid fish soup with some shellfish.
|The kitchen of the ship Fram, which went to both the North Pole and the South Pole|
in the late 19th century. The entire ship is now in a museum, which we
toured this afternoon, our first activity with our cruise.
|From the ship museum. Explorer Fridtjof Nansen was the expedition leader. He later became an important figure in the League of Nations, and especially tried to rescue many refugees after World War I and the Armenian Genocide.|
|How the Fram traveled for 3 years through the Arctic Ocean -- it was designed to have a shape that could be pushed by the ice and currents. All 13 men on board survived the ship's incredible journeys.|
