August 9

So I woke up quite early in Lakselv and get breakfast, prepared and eventually said goodbye to Anne and the children before getting on the road... I walked by the church and tried to get a short through a kindergarten area which was pretty weird when I noticed...

Finally, I found a good spot along the road and stopped there and did some pictures of myself and the area around before awaiting for the few cars passing by. Finally I havent had to wait long before a norvegian took me over in his caravan all the way to the crossroad that goes to Nordkapp or Alta, in Olderfjord. There the waiting has been long, way more long and some little dropplet of rain get over my head so I sheltered for a moment. But the traffic was really scarce and the hours went on... mainly buses passing.

Finally, a guy took me over after I started to walk along the road and brought me to the next crossroad which is only few km further. At least it was something I didnt get to walk. Then I started to walk along the road next to the fjord and did so for few km until a swedish guy stopped to pick me over and he was going all the way to Nordkapp. We stopped at few spot to take some pictures of the pristine turquoise fjord water or the reindeer. He was studying medicine and was suppose to work in Alta but it seems a mistakes had been done and he was being moved down in southern Norway for the job and he wanted to have the chance to go to Nordkapp before leaving in a few days so he rented a car at 'rent a wreck', which makes that you rent old crappy car for really cheap price.

So the ride went really cool and I promoted him to HC, finally we also approached the long 8km long tunnel that brings us to Mageroya island and on the other side there was a toll booth to pay for the tunnel and even all passenger had to pay, but finally he paid the fees for me. We approached Honningsvåg and he drove me to the villages even asking me if I wanted to join him to Nordkapp now but I said I would wait the following day. He was really pretty cool and I was his first HH.

Then I contacted Christian who came to pick me up not so long ago to bring me to the place I was going to stay, which was the tv room of a church convent where they all were staying (the guide to Nordkapp). We talked and cooked and finally later I went to sleep there after looking the never coming night!
