Truth.... isn't it strange?

" Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities . Truth isn't "

Almaz posing in front of the shed that is behind my grandmothers home. Note the reindeer antlers! 

Old fishing cottage to house the fishermen when the seas were rough. 

Amazing and beautiful. This is what you see everywhere you turn when traveling through the Lofoten Islands.

Almaz doesn't look too excited about the prospect of eating whale burger!

cousin Gunhild hosted us while visiting the homestead lands of my Grandmothers family.... near the Lofoten islands.

this was the landscape in every direction! Amazing but alas I am not the best photographer. I guess I need to do some painting

This is the view from my guest bedroom balcony at the site where grandma Anna grew up. this was taken Oct 7th. Weather not unlike Oregon. Mild even though we are across the arctic circle here.
