A Nordic fan

This is a photo of Bernt Baltzersen, a Norwegian writer and film-maker, wearing his wolf-skin cap and holding a copy of the book. Bernt is hoping to accompany Erling Viksund, the builder of Magnus who is also the new owner of the boat, on a voyage in the tracks of the Norwegian emigrants of the 19th century. They intend to cruise up the St. Lawrence, through the Great Lakes, down the Mississippi and across to Florida and the Bahamas, starting in May, 2008.

I hope Chicago is strong enough to withstand the arrival of the Vikings.
