Dried Fish

Today we made a trip to Henningsvaer. Here I could finally get very close to a dried fish scaffold. On such wooden scaffolds millions of cod are air dried all over Lofoten and then exported all over the world, mainly to the Mediterranean. The whole thing smells very much like fish - to say) - and you shouldn't stand under the scaffoldings when taking pictures, because the hung up fish constantly loses its water, that's why the brownish colored snow under the scaffoldings...otherwise you can dispose your clothes and the cam right away with :). The dried fish itself is a delicacy which I have e.g. already eaten in Portugal! It is also available here on the Lofoten as a snack, to buy a kind of chips, but somehow I didn't like it...
