By that time the children had already grown up, so I just bought a ticket and flew … to the Kalahari Desert, 2008. Remember the movie? Gods Must be Crazy-2? A must watch. I always wondered if one day I could run like the bushmen in the movie.
They met me at the Lillehammer railway station at night and drove to the place – a small village in the mountains behind the boom. A few summer barns and one hotel – that’s Hornsjo, a small alpine village above Lillehammer in Norway.
I was dreaming about this since my childhood, how I would stay at the very end of the land, facing the North Pole. For some reason I don’t want to stay in the North Pole itself, and minus 50 is not the reason.
