I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Lost in the fog

As I suspected, the scheduled tour was modified because of the weather; the mountaintop farm had closed early for the season, and we were going to be learning all about making goat cheese at a lower elevation than originally planned.

The rest of the tour went as scheduled though, starting with a hair-raising ride up a series of switchbacks to the top of one of the mountains, and then down again on the other side.

This is Storfjorden, or the Big Fjord, the main fjord of which Geiranger is just one of the branches. I usually think of myself as having a good sense of direction, but the fjords turn me all around. I can't get a sense of how they relate to each other on a map.

And this weather doesn't help. I have no idea which way anything is from here, and it's disorienting.
