Day 14 - June 25 - HAMMERFEST

This was my last full day in Hammerfest, Thor's hometown for 10 months in 1941. Spent the afternoon writing while sitting at my self-made "office" in the Resistance Museum's cafe. It has helped to keep a hand-written journal in which I have writing reflections at the end of each day. I began transcribing these notes to the computer and it is amazing how many things I have done in 14 days - how many things I have discovered and learned - and how much I still need to figure out. For example, just this morning I thought to ask, "What businesses were here in 1940-41 when Thor was here?". There is a map from that time period - so hopefully I can extract some information from that and from museum/history center sources (I can read there was fish market near the town center for example).
