... SONT IVRES
Tous les morts sont ivres de pluie vieille et froide
Au cimetičre étrange de Lofoten
L'horloge du dégel tictaque lointaine
Au coeur des cercueils pauvres de Lofoten

Les corbeaux sont gras de froide chair humaine
Et grâce au maigre vent ŕ la voix d'enfant
Le sommeil est doux aux morts de Lofoten
Je ne verrai trčs probablement jamais
Ni la mer ...

It was an enjoyable holiday. The Lofoten Islands are beautiful and the people were very friendly. So I would recommend going there.
... our way back, we were greeted by this very sociable cat, who just loved our attention.
The next stop was an appointment with a king. There is a viewpoint not far from the pier, with a statue of King Olsten standing on top. The fishermen who worked in the fishing villages, used to sleep under their upturned boats. King Olsten, who collected taxes from the fishermen, wanted to keep them happy. So he had rorbuers built for them. It was a bit of a struggle climbing up ...
... at 10pm, the Hurtigruten had just docked and the people looked like ants spilling out onto the dock from the guts of the ship. I went over to the Anker Brygge for a short while because there was a good band playing. But I wanted to get up early for the dancing in the morning, so I headed back after about half an hour. I kept a keen eye on the sky because it was clear and was hoping to see some sign of the Northern Lights but "not tonight Josephine"!
