Explored Alesund on my own today. Everything runs differently on Saturdays. The ferry stops running early, most museums are closed, and there was some weird inflatable boat race going on in the center of town.
I also ran into some sister missionaries, which made my day. And some guy gave me a rose to try and get me to vote for something. He let me keep it even when I explained that I'm definitely not Norwegian (although I wish I could be).
