Corn Island is a strong piece of movie that doesn't even need to rely on dialogue to convey it's deep matter of concern. Can't say it's for everyone to enjoy but I for one was instantly absorbed into the heavy waters of this river of a film.
It's the longest day of the year!! Around this time the Ålesundians also celebrate Sankthans by building a huge (they even set the world record in 2010) wooden tower while blasting forgot about Dre through the fjord and setting the whole thing on fire. This year it's 33m high.
We went to see the Giskespelet today, a historical reenactment of a part of a Norwegian saga involving many battles before the country was united.
Today also happens to be the warmest day of the year so far, with temperatures exceeding 20C° and me getting a sunburn :0
Finally managed to take the cozy chairlift up to the lille kubben. This crappy cell phone shot perfectly depicts the thirty minute weather cycle we've experienced the past what-feels-like-a-year from left to right.
We've had a couchsurfing guest from Switzerland over for the weekend and drove to the nearby commune of Haram getting in touch with some locals. They've got remarkably short legs compared to the ones I know from Germany.
