Theme day: books (62)
Our theme day is this month books. When you look at my photo you wouldn't probably say at first that it is a book. But in fact it is one. On this fence the Sami reindeer owner have written down the amount of the reindeer missing. These numbers are quite big - every family needs 800-1000 to make their living from it, so it's not little when 107 animals are missing (even if this is the total number for 5 families who own reindeer living on Magerøya). Unfortunately I forgot to ask Nils about these numbers as it was a day full of experiences (see here, and here), so I can't say more about it.
The reason for posting this particular photo is that - as I'm not in Norway anymore - I have a quite limited amount of pictures to choose from (it is also the reason for posting less frequently).
