The Faroe government buildings are built on the same point of land that the Vikings used when they first settled the the place. Note the grass roofs both on the government buildings and on others behind.
In the centre-right of the photo a farm can be seen, providing a perspective of the height.
Not just black or white. The sheep are many colours including brown and two-tone.They are rounded up once a year for shearing.
The view of the town from the road at the top of the hill behind the town. Our ship can be seen in the centre.
We went by bus from Torshavn to Vestmanna and then by boat to the sea cliffs, one of the most popular tourist attractions on the Faroes.
Some grottoes are large enough for boats to enter. This is one of them.
We even saw sheep on patches of grass on the cliffs. No idea how they got there or how they are rounded up from there.
Cairns were built to help travelers find their way from one village to the next, especially in the winter.
The wind and sea have carved many grottoes into the base of the cliffs.
The view going in
Spectacular views, but no trees to be seen. The only trees that one sees are in the town and they were imported and planted.
Inside looking out
Sheep at large
Across the island, sheep are allowed to roam. Our guide told us that they need to be careful when driving. If you hit a sheep it costs $500. Hit a human, and there is no cost.
