Extreme Web Surfs!
Monday, August 30, 2004
Sitting in an unbreathable hot, humid, stagnant tropical miasma which has covered New England once again, my thoughts turn to the far North. To cool, breezy islands, inhabited by a few fishermen, and lonely willowy Nordic Ice Maidens..
The Faroe Island's have a history long entwined with Denmark, although they are now pretty much self governing. There is a movement for complete independence underway..
This photo gallery shows the beauty of the islands..
As with many small nations, postage stamps provide a nice source of revenue..
Mykines Island has wonderful birds; here and see them here..
The Faroese language is an interesting one; like Icelandic, close to Old Norse. See it, and hear it..
Scandanavica has stuff of interest concerning the entire Nordic world..
My mind is not a bed to be made and remade.
