Fall, 2005 - Finland, Norway and Russia

Posted 09/30/03

In Moscow now, and it's true: these Russians can drink some vodka. Here's two pix from Norway, where we were in Svalbard. It was way too freaking cold and always dark with a brutal wind. I'm talking icepick in your ear cold, and i'm from freaking Fairbanks, Alaska so I KNOW cold. Gotta run before they call me back for another shot...

Rick at the Dark Season Blues Festival. The Norwegians were players! This 21 year old drummer was a killer. Thanks to Hakon for this shot.

Rick gets some warmth from a new friend. Thanks to Rune Endal of Norwegian Blues News.
