I’ve been carving stamps for the last couple of days. I’m selling my stamps on a small Christmas market in Freienstein (Switzerland), two weeks from now. Come an have a look if you are close by. Good food, nice people and lot’s of beautiful gifts.
Bergen Kaffebreneriet has started to produce their own chocolate. They have three types, named after the country the cacao beans are from. Kongo is a classic chocolate, with cacao beans from Virunga National Parc, where the endangered gorillas live. Den Dominikanske Republiken is made from fair trade cacao and contains fruits. Madagaskar tasts of citrus fruit and has been given away already.
I like the design and look forward to try them.
Høgsete is a field site close to Flåm in western Norway where I do field work. It is a 30 min walk up a steep hill and through forest. It’s tricky to reach, because there are a lot sheep trails and more than one person have gone lost trying to find it (including me).
Amy took pictures, while Francesca, Nicola and me showed the way. I hope nobody will ever get lost again. The guide can be downloaded here: GuideToHogsete
Li told me that when she learnt English in School they learnt the work „hiking“. And nobody understood the word. The teacher had to explain what hiking was and that other cultures like to do other things in their free time.
So I thought it was a good idea to show her what Norwegians do on the weekend: Hiking on Vidden.
A graphical way to show all the species that we thought had gone extinct but showed up years later, very much alive.
Sheepview360 is a project to bring the Faroe Island on Google Street View. Durita who initiated the project has mounted cameras on sheep that walked around and take pictures from all over the islands.
Now google has reacted and has send cameras to take pictures all over the Faroe Islands. But the approach is different from other places. The pictures are taken from the back of horses, from kayak and even a wheelbarrow.
