While travelling on the island Senja we found an old schoolbook on a shelf in a café. Knut Hamsun's "Markens grøde" is a classic that most Norwegians met during their school days./p>
Without understanding the content we marked a few sections of the text and asked locals to read these sentences to us. Later we combined our recordings with fotos that we took during our journey.
It remains open if these pictures correspond with what the readers imagined.
We are happy about the many interesting encounters and stories that we heard as well as the positive reactions and would like to thank:
