Mischeif, Mayhem, and Flying Whales?

Today was almost another lazy day, only this time I decided that rain or no, I was going to spend as much time out as possible.  After, of course, I spent the morning reading blogs and washing my undies in the bathroom sink.

I started by wandering down the street to the Viking Museum, which had been constructed over the original archaeology site of the town of Aros (the first recorded name for Arhus).  There is now a bank on top of this site and the museum is located in the basement.

It was somewhat interactive – buttons and “stand here for the ruins to speak to you” sorts of things.  It wasn’t very big, but I still think it was very informative and well done.  The set-up flowed very naturally through the viking era, ending with information about the excavation done in 1963.

From here, I walked around down-town some more, got coffee, went souvenir shopping.

(Dear staff at The Other Brother, I may or may not have gotten you 250 grams of a dark roast Guatemala.  The only clue I will give is that every time I open my suitcase, I get hit with a waft of cacao and coffee.)

Yarn, because I know some of you have been wondering when I would cave.  This is the only yarn I’ve bought myself (knock on wood), because it is made in Denmark.  I am going to design a shawl for myself.

Speaking of yarn, I left Arhus a present:

And then I went to the International Art Museum for the afternoon.

Tomorrow is our last day in Arhus.  I am hoping (*fingers crossed*) to make it to the Moesgaard Museum, which is a little south of the city.  We then drive to Hamburg, Germany for the night.  And, Friday, we fly to Montpellier for the weekend.  I am hoping to give you a quick update before the end of tomorrow – perhaps a simple procession of the knitting I accomplished while in Arhus?
