It was a grey day when we were wandering around Tórshavn, so our photos aren't as stunning as some of the landscapes we captured later in the week. It was also Easter weekend, so everything was closed. However, as capital cities go, I think Tórshavn is quite an interesting one.
We were slightly amazed at how easy it was to wander between the grass-roofed buildings of the old parliament (now government offices) and peer through the windows.
|We were even able to take Androcles II to visit the Prime Minister's office. We had to be very careful with him, though, for fear that he might dissolve in all the rain.|
But the thing I really wanted to share with you was the ferry, which runs regularly between Tórshavn, Denmark, and Iceland. It arrived as we were walking around the coast.
"When the ferry is in town," we were told, "it's the tallest building in Tórshavn."
Zooming in, if you look closely to the right of the picture, you can see the way it towers over the grass roofs of the parliament.
It might not be quite the highest point in the city (some of which is built on the hillsides), but it's pretty close.
