Village --- Day 8/363

Walk: Yes! 
Distance: 2.3 miles

Who knows why Ciwt was so struck by this picture today.  Maybe in this time of sheltering things are sinking in more deeply.  It is of Sumba, the southernmost village of the Faroe Islands.  And it is of a way of life which goes back to @ 778 that is so utterly different from Ciwt's it confounds her.  Beautiful, rugged, raging winter storms, chain dancing and long songs are traditions, no shops, restaurants or bars, the bus must be arranged for and doesn't necessarily return in short order.
