Today I got lost in Viborg.
I thought it was a small town. How could I get lost?
Small towns with narrow streets seem to go on forever.
I also had another handicap. I can’t tell where North is.
In Colorado I always have the mountains, when I see them I can tell where West is, and the rest is academic. Here in Viborg, I can’t even see the sky. Inside a maze of three and four story brick buildings I can’t even see a landmark during the day light.
Lucky for me, my flat is near a huge stadium. Once it got dark I was able to follow the stadium lights to a familiar street. I tried to use Google-earth on my cell phone; however, you have to know where you are going and where you are for it to be any use. I didn’t even know how to spell the street name.
I now have my flat marked in Google-maps so I should be able to find home next time I start to wander around town.
Oh, and I also found a lovely statue during my wanderings.
I hope you agree with me that this is probably the oddest religious statue ever created for public viewing. I could be wrong. Many people believe that god gave man the artistic talent to create things of beauty. This proves that god has a sense of humor. I will try to look up the story on the statue and post it in the comments.
