An Excursion to Roskilde
There was a large standard cruise ship at the pier when we had arrived. Apparently it had just pulled in.
As we traveled, he spoke about life in Denmark, sharing that the income tax was very high, but covered all medical care and education expenses. He explained about the recent modifications of bike lanes throughout the country (I believe there are many more bicycles than automobiles) so that they would extend beyond the motor vehicles at traffic lights, making turns so much safer.
Roskilde is known for two major features. The first is the Domkirke Cathedral, built in the twelfth century.
The first highlight that he pointed to was this twenty-four hour clock. It was the first time I'd seen such a thing, and it was fascinating to see how the various bell chimes on it worked. The next photos all were taken inside this magnificent cathedral.
They performed several old Danish dances for our entertainment as we prepared to leave the port.
The large cruise ship was scheduled to pull out just before Star Flyer, and another school band had been sent to wish us farewell.
