The day was bright, but windy and cold.  I decided to go back up to Murberg to visit the open-air museum, take some photos, and just wander.  The way up was a bit easier this time, since much of the ice had melted, and the sand/gravel on the sidewalks was more effective.  I got to the area a little before 1:00, found the old stone church, actually a replica built in the early 20th century, the bell tower, and several old homes/shops, all of which were locked up tight.  One building was said to be the only building left over from a destructive fire set by the Russians in the early 18th century, and why it should have survived is not obvious.  Since the sun goes behind the mountain about 1:30, I headed home about then, and missed some of the best light, but I wanted to get back for coffee and cakes!
