As it was still raining when we left the viking ship museum we decide to further our education regarding the maritime and visit the Kon Tiki museum as well. Thor Heyerdahl was one of history’s most famous scientists, adventurers and champions for the environment.The Kon Tiki Museum houses original boats and exhibits from his world famous expeditions. The museum is home to permanent exhibitions about: Ra (1969-70), Tigris (1977-78), Fati-Hiva (1937-38), Kon Tiki(1947) and Easter Island Expedition (1955-56).It has a separate area for short-term exhibitions, as well as a 30 meter cave tour and an underwater exhibition containing a life-size 10-meter whale shark! Not real of course!
Tonight we decided we were going to eat "in" and relax after walking for what seemed like hours.So we took a trip to The local supermarket. What a chore it was trying to figure out the prices of things! We couldn't figure out if the packaged meats/cheeses were priced according to grams or for the whole package. We still really don't know as we just bought what we wanted brought it home and ate it. It was still more reasonable that the hotel restaurants. Bruce was in his glory though, as he found a roasted chicken. Something he had been craving for about a week.
