Heads Rolled in Norway

Trondheim, Norway

We wanted to see a Stave church, and the closest one was in Trondheim, Norway. So we jumped on the train and took the two and a half hour trip there. We got some Norway money at the train station, and headed to the old town. There, we found lots of buses going everywhere. We found one going to the Folk Museum, which is a large open air museum showing how people lived long ago in Norway. The Stave church was there. When we bought our tickets to the museum we figured we were in trouble, because they told us most of the buildings were closed. Anyway, we walked around and saw some interesting things - like grass growing on the roof tops. The grass was greener on those roof tops than the grass in Texas is on the ground! It was a shame the church was closed, but later my daughter told me that Epcot has one that I saw years ago - I had forgotten, but now I remember. It was real pretty inside. Oh, well.
It didn't take long to go through the mostly closed museum, so we headed back to the town. As we walked around, we noticed this huge Gothic cathedral. We walked over to it, and it got bigger and bigger. Anyway, we got a picture of most of it, but that's not the interesting thing. I began to study the figures carefully, and discovered something really wild. The figures were like something out of a horror film. I guess they must represent people who were involved in bad stuff, like this guy I photographed. Look what he is holding - a basket of heads! What is that about? Another guy was holding his own head in his hands. Another guy had just the top part of his head chopped off. What goes on in Norway? After looking around a bit more, we returned to Are, Sweden. I found no severed heads on display there.
