Mount Ulrik

Friday, April 19th 2002

We made a trip up Mount Ulrik. The sun had disappeared behind cloud again, and the views from the top were atmospheric. Bergen sprawls around fjords and mountains, and we had great views of the countryside around the city.

In a cafe at the top, we had my old favourite Nordic snack, pølse - cheap hot dog, available everywhere in Scandinavia. I liked it more than its taste or nutritional value could ever justify, but in Iceland, pylsur had been a great source of protein that was within my travelling budget, and I'd eaten them frequently. Cheap hot dogs therefore always triggered happy memories of places all over Iceland.
