Bergen - First Impressions

I moved in last night to what could be the most beautiful city in the world. By day, the brief sunlight lay golden on buildings and rocks and pines, and lit up the mountaintop snow. The downtown seemed full of lovely buildings, parks, and water-features. In the long winter twilight, everything is a pastel grey-violet, and from my window I see white houses up the mountainside, and the surprisingly modern skyline of the city to my left, reflected in the harbours in front and behind... and beyond that, more mountains again. At night the city stays bright and the hills look lit-up like christmas lights.
