Norwegian coastlineThank you to those kind people in the Lofoten Islands who wrote to me after I played in the music festival there last week. By popular request, here is another photo I took, this time from the plane on the way back to the Norwegian mainland.

The scene reminded me of the character Slartibartfast in Douglas Adams’ ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’. Slartibartfast was a planetary coastline designer who had won awards for his design of the coastline of Norway. This little glimpse of the coastline shows that the award was well deserved.
