  Village on Aurlandsfjord
by evaanna

The boat Flam - Gudvangen calls at a tiny village on its way to deliver mail. The boat could moor there but as there were no passengers waiting for it today, it just stopped for a moment and a small mail bag was dropped on the pier. The man that came to collect it seems to live in the second house in the picture but he had a special vehicle, a kind of buggy, to come to the pier for it. Soon walking will be a thing of the past, don't you think?

    i guess all sorts of wierd and wonderful shapes come in the mail or could appear off the boat! and in various weather as well - i did the Hirtigruten trip from Harstad to Kirkenes which feeds many towns and villages along the coast with mail, all sort of deliveries - was a fascinating trip, i usually was up at various times thorugh the night and darkness to watch many of the stops we had
