    I'm expecting a proper Finnmark summer Yves - sun, rain, snow, hail, wind - all within the same 24 hours!

    Is that the kind of weather you expect for your next vacations in H'vag, Mark? In case don't forget your survival rations...

    Yup - been like it for ages now, particularly through reading www.radionordkapp.no every day to watch what's been happening on Magerøya. Last week the snow plough (brøtebil) driver got stuck in his lorry for over 24 hours - as did the snowblower driver who went out to rescue him! (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...i-broytebilen/)

    They had the helicopter out with its clever pulse generators to move the avalanches (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...es-se-videoen/), then another load fell. Various of the hurtigruter have taken exciting routes past Gjesværtappen and Nordkapp (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...undt-nordkapp/).

    The man who went out to fix the ventilation at Nordkapp has been there six days - eating his way through all the food that the hurtigruter passengers haven't eaten because the buses can't get anywhere (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...-snart-en-uke/) - and now, as the article says - the supermarkets are delivering by fishing boat (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...or-bestilling/).

    The boats have got in every day though, and Widerøe is actually managing a pretty good service into Valan airport.

    This has been great fun to watch!!

    As a conclusion, the more "dramatic place" of the village, the Church which survived at the atrocities of IIWW.

    Maybe I bumpted into your brother in law in the street, who knows?
    Anyway the people I spoke with were not really locals. The owner of the bakery where I had the best capuccino and coockies in Nornorge was a French speaker from Guinea and the manager of the gallery just in front the bakery is a compatriot from Le Mans, 100km from my home town! Honningsvag, northest capital of French-speaking world.....

    Fantastic Yves - soooo pleased you and Françoise had a great time in the village. My brother in law doesn't appear in any of the photos! Only 3 months now and we will be back there on the edge of the world. Thanks so much for sharing the photos.
