None actually.  About the time I was going to post this picture here... I thought of a friend, who is Ukrainian.

Xfce (on our old Dell laptop)



Photo of a brightly painted tap tap under a beautiful Haitian sky.

The original photo and companion blog article can be found here:

https://thirdeyemom.com/2015/03/02/art-on-wheels-the-tap-taps-of-port-au-prince/
"Art on Wheels: The Tap Taps of Port-au-Prince." 2 Mar. 2015.

According to Wikipedia:

Quote
Tap taps are gaily painted buses or pick-up trucks with metal covers that serve as share taxis in Haiti. They may also be referred to as camionette. Literally meaning “quick quick”, these vehicles for hire are privately owned and ornately decorated. They follow fixed routes, do not leave until filled with passengers, and riders can disembark at any point in the journey. Often painted with religious names or slogans, the tap tap is known for its lavish decoration, and many feature wild colors, portraits of famous people ... and intricate, hand-cut wooden window covers.

Run for the hills, those Norwegians are back again....

Where I live there have been two different viking ships invading yet again from Denmark and Norway over the past 20 years. Sea Stallion and a trading ship whose name I cannot remember (Sea Lion?). In addition there is a real Viking Parliament here where a bunch of <snip> meet once a year to cause more problems for the locals. (It is similar to Iceland's Thingvellir).

Where I am it is the Norwegian Vikings who were present, whereas on the East coast of England it was the Danish Vikings causing mayhem. (Note King Cnut/Canute 1016–1035 was king of England, Denmark, and Norway).

I went to the site of the Battle Of Hastings a while back. This was when William of Normandy (a Danish prince/viking), defeated King Harold. On the mini roundabout above the station at Battle where the action took place I could not decide whether to face downhill, to oppose the Danes, or to face uphill against the English.

Nice piccy.

Interesting that you got a choice ......  did everyone see the roundabout before the battle and decide on which side to fight?

I read there are many place names of Scandinavian origin over there. Anyway, I have done a little research of my ancestry, and almost all of it is from Western Norway the last 200-300 years, where probably most of the Viking settlers/raiders came from. Now, both myself and my sister took online DNA tests from two different companies, and both of them showed (to my surprise) about 20% of the DNA originating from the British isles.

Here is the roundabout:

https://i2-prod.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article2872240.ece/ALTERNATES/s615/Battle-of-Hastings-was-fought-at-the-site-of-mini-roundabout.jpg

This is allegedly the true site of the Battle of Hastings, 1066.

Danish vikings came uphill from Hastings. King Harold held the high ground.

On ancestry for amusement look at Icelanders. They are a mixture of (Norwegian?) vikings and the Celtic slaves they stole. You can play a game of "where are you from" looking at the locals. They know this. Flew in a competition there 1997, The Celtic Cup. Top place.
