Longyearbyen

21-08-2014
Spent a leisure day in Longyearbyen; visited the Airship museum for Polar Exploration, which was very good, if a bit large for just one visit, then went shopping, on a café and for a walk up to the large old cable railway station (distributor building) for coal carts, through which the coal carts came, by way of towing along cables on high masts, from the different mines in the area. Quite ingenious – must have been hugely useful. Tonight we had reserved a table, so had a lovely meal at Kroa.
