North of Arctic Circle 6 / Al norte del Círculo polar ártico 6/ Au nord du Cercle Arctique6/ Ao norte do Círculo Polar Ártico 6

In English:

Day 5 (Tuesday, September 03, 2013). Distance: Round trip 234km / 145.4mi. Temperature: morning 6.ºC / 42.8.4ºF and evening 14.5ºC / 58.1F. Route: Sonkamuotka-Enontekiö-Hetta-Kaaresuvanto-Muonio.

When wakening in the morning we heard very sad news to us Finns from radio: Microsoft will buy Nokia. A brief history of Nokia. Nokia has been our proud in Finland! So slowly, but surely mobile phones made by Nokia will disappear from the World. Sigh.

Today we decided to go further to the North. After some driving I had to stop suddenly because on the both sides of the road there were souvenirs shops in Sonkamuotka. There were wood carvings which I wanted to photograph. A closer look showed that they were not as skillfully made as what we had found earlier from our trips. These were roughly carved. Anyway some were humoristic carvings as a Lapp with beer can in hand and the Lapp playing accordion. In addition to these carvings there were wildlife wolf, elk and bears. The three wolverine photos are from Kaaresuvanto.

Día 5 (Martes, 03 de septiembre 2013). Distancia: ida y vuelta 234km / 145.4mi. Temperatura: mañana 6.ºC / 42.8.4ºF y por la noche 14.5ºC / 58.1F. Sonkamuotka-Enontekiö-Hetta-Kaaresuvanto-Muonio.

Al despertar por la mañana nos oyéramos una noticia muy triste para nosotros los finlandeses en la radio: Microsoft comprará Nokia. La historia de Nokia. Nokia ha sido nuestro orgullo en Finlandia! Así que poco a poco, pero seguro que los teléfonos móviles fabricados por Nokia desaparecerán del mundo. Suspiro.

Hoy decidíamos de ir más lejos hacia el Norte. Tras recorrer un corto viaje en carro tuve que parar de repente porque en los ambos lados de la carretera habían tiendas de souvenirs en Sonkamuotka. Animales fueron talladas en madera que quería fotografiar. Una mirada más cercana mostró que no se hicieron tallados tan hábilmente como los que habíamos encontrado en nuestros viajes anteriores. Estos fueron más o menos labrados. De todos modos algunos eran tallados de manera humorístico como un lapón con una lata de cerveza en la mano y el lapón jugando acordeón. Además de estas tallas habían lobo, alces y osos. Las tres ultimas fotos de un carcayú son de Kaaresuvanto.

En francais:

Jour 5 (Mardi, 03 Septembre 2013). Distance: aller et retour 234km / 145.4mi. Température: matin 6.ºC / 42.8.4ºF et le 14.5ºC / 58.1F. Route: Sonkamuotka-Enontekiö-Hetta-Kaaresuvanto-Muonio.

Lorsque réveillant le matin, nous avons entendu très tristes nouvelles à nous Finlandais de la radio: Microsoft va acheter Nokia. L’histoire de la téléphonie Nokia en images depuis 1984 !. Nokia a été notre fierté en Finlande! Ainsi, lentement mais sûrement les téléphones mobiles réalisés par Nokia disparaîtront du Monde. Soupir.

Aujourd’hui, nous avons décidé d’aller plus loin vers le Nord. Après quelques moments conduite je devais arrêter subitement parce que sur les deux côtés de la route, il y avait des boutiques de souvenirs dans Sonkamuotka. Il y avait des sculptures en bois que je voulais photographier. Un examen plus approfondi a montré qu’ils n’étaient pas aussi habilement fait que celles que nous avions trouvé plus tôt de nos voyages. Elles ont été plus ou moins mal sculptées. Parmi ells il y avait certains que étaient sculptures humoristiques comme un Lapon avec une canette de bière à la main et le Lapon jouant accordéon. En plus de ces sculptures, il y avait des animaux comme loup, le wapiti et l’ours. Les trois dernières photos d’un carcajou sont de Kaaresuvanto.

Em Português:

Dia 5 (terça-feira 3 setembro , 2013). Distância: Ida e volta 234km / 145.4mi. Temperatura: manhã de 6.ºC / 42.8.4ºF e à noite 14.5ºC / 58.1F. Rota: Sonkamuotka-Enontekiö-Hetta-Kaaresuvanto-Muonio.

Depois de despertar pela manhã, ouvimos muito triste notícia de rádio para nós, os finlandeses: O Microsoft vai comprar a Nokia (a Nokia é uma empresa finlandesa de telecomunicações). A história da Nokia A Nokia tem sido o nosso orgulho na Finlândia! então, lentamente, mas certamente os celulares feitos pela Nokia irá desaparecer do mundo. Suspiro.

Hoje decidimos ir mais longe para o Norte. Depois de alguma condução eu tinha que parar de repente, porque em ambos os lados da estrada, havia lojas de souvenirs em Sonkamuotka. Havia umas esculturas em madeira quais eu queria fotografar. Um olhar mais atento mostrou que elas não eram tão habilmente feito como quais que tínhamos encontrado anteriormente de nossas viagens. Estes foram grosseiramente esculpida. Enfim alguns eram esculturas humorísticas como o Lapp com uma lata de cerveja na mão e o Lapp tocando acordeão. Além dessas esculturas havia um lobo selvagem, umas alces e umosursos. As últimas três fotos presentem um carcaju em Kaaresuvanto.

  6. Photos #2 and #3 are my favorites!!! The gentleman with the bear is awesome and I really like that moose!!! Some of the figures are a bit intimidating with a hint of a scowl! We are not hunters so the “stuffed” critters aren’t something I understand (I know that taxidermy is an incredible art!). That is quite the shop, though……….something for everyone!!!!!!! Hugs………………..

      Thank You. Well, to us also stuffed animals are “weird”. Those living nearby the nature and having hobby hunting might love; so I think.

  9. I enjoyed these wood carvings very much, but I was really impressed with the stuffed animals. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a wolverine as large as the one in your last pictures.

    I can remember when Nokia phones were the best that could be gotten. It’s too bad the company was sold to Microsoft.

    • Hi George.

      Thank You for Your comment and saying so kindly from Nokia. In our family Nokia has big importance and that is why it touched us so much personally. Nokia Lumia 1020 Smartphone has 41 megapixel camera! Comparing to my old Nikon D300 12.3 megapixel camera the difference is huge.

      The name Nokia will stay in our world because Nokia makes good tires for cars and I love its winter tires. Yet another Nokia is called: Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) making “things” for telephone operators worldwide.

      Have a great week end!

  10. ¡Increíble serie de fotografías! personalmente me gustan mucho más las de los paisajes. Respecto a las tallas algunas me parecen buenas y otras no tanto. Pero me hago una pregunta ¡tanta madera les sobra? -pues se que allí todo lo construyen con esta materia prima-.
    Como siempre, gracias por tu relato.
    Un saludo.

    • Hola Isabel.

      Muchas gracias al hacer un comentario tan amable. Mi proximas postes te presentan paisajes bonitos, así que Usted tiene que esperar. La distancia desde Circulo polar es 214 kilometers y hay árboles así en norte, piensalo.

      Feliz fin de semana!

  11. He buscado tu nombre en “about me” para dirigirme a ti y no me parece que lo pongas.
    “Sartenada” significa: alimentos que se fríen o aben en una sartén. Y se me hace raro dirigirme a ti con ese nombre.

    Gracias.

      Bueno, quiero ser incognito en Internet. Yo lo sé exactamente lo que significa mi seudónimo. Quería seleccionar el nombre que sea fácil de pronunciar en inglés, español, francés, portugués y en muchos otros idiomas. Parece que tuve éxito con mi nombre porque la gente busca cosas recordando mi nombre.

      La mayoria parte de mis visitantes vienen de la America Sur, Centro America, España y Estados Unidos.

      ¡Que tengan un muy buen día!

  15. Wonderful photos! I love all the wood sculptures. Your comment about Nokia and your photo of the penguin sculptures reminded me of one Finn who didn’t sell out to Microsoft or anybody else!

    • Hi Ann.

      I am glad for Your visit and comment. Thank You. Well, there are many stories about Nokia. The majority of Finns did not want that it was sold.

      I tell short story from my life which dates back 10 years in May. My daughter worked few months in Santiago de Chile and I visited her with my granddaughter. One day I found gorgeous jacket for my wife. I asked the vender if I can take a photo from it, send it to my wife in Finland and ask if she wants it. So it happened and I had the answer in two minutes that buy it. The vendor was looking with “round eyes” this operation. Nowadays it is normal, but ten years ago it was not.

      Happy weekday!

  17. Muito sensível em escrever em outras linguagens.Amei as fotos e o post. Essas esculturas de madeira me fizeram lembrar do meu cunhado. Ele era um artista e quando era vivo.fez muitas delas. Obrigada por compartilhar!

    • Olá Mariagbco.

      Eu gosto da sua visita e comentário. Para mim toma às vezes algumas horas para me traduzir meus posts em Português, mas eu adoro isso. Comecei no último outono para aprender Português, é muito bela linguagem e sua pronúncia difere muito da de espanhol.

      Muito obrigado pela belíssimo comentário. Bom fim de Semana!

      Thank You commenting and making a question. In that photo there are two flags. The flag of Finland is white with blue cross. The other flag is:

      Sami flag.

      Some of these statues are indeed humorous indeed.

      Have a nice Sunday!

  21. What a fun trip you had! I agree it’s sad about Nokia – definitely too much of the world is becoming owned by a few people, a detriment to us all. I love the carvings, especially those whimsical little men that I would call trolls.

    • Hello Johanna.

      Thank You for Your kind comment and thinking the background of making my posts. I would say love and passion.🙂 It was last September when we decided with my wife to start to learn a new language. We selected Portuguese. Our course is once a week and we love it and all the honor belongs to young Brazilian lady. She has incredible ability to inspire us. We are not learning things from the textbook, but also from the living life using her own material.

      My first” attempt” to translate in Portuguese lasted about three hours. Well, continuing translations my brains will stay “young”.🙂

      Have a great new week.

      • I think that’s probably the best way to learn a language, and it’s something I need to do for my Polish (and my Portuguese too!) I need a bigger brain 🙂

  25. Hello in Finnland, I thought of you today, because I saw an intersting speech on TED by Pasi Sahlberg and why the Finnish schoolsystem is so successful and he told us a short story about your people which impressed me and went like this: After 25 years of marriage a wife asked her husband whether he still loved her because he never told her and he answered but I told you that I loved you when we married and should there be any changes in my feelings I will tell you! I think the world needs more people with this kind of stable feelings.
    Anyway, I especially like your pictures of the in wood carved animals and I wish you a very good week.:) Very best regards Martina

    • Hello Martina.

      Thank You. I am not commenting our school system, but love. Well, my opinion is that man must tell to her wife that he loves her many times a day / every day. Always words are not the only way to tell it, but tender look, hugs, kisses, holding her hand and touching tenderly. I am so old fashioned man, but I understand what woman needs – love.🙂

      Have a great day!

      • that was a touching answer and I understand that your wife is really lucky and that behaviours differ even in your country! Many thanks to you also for all your love you put into your pictures. Excuse me for having written about a topic that did not really belong to this place. I also wish you and your wife a great day.:)

        • Hi Martina.

          No problems, You are welcome. Although I still do not want to discuss about our school system, I only say that I hope that the Youth should read more books and newspapers. It is not enough to read topics from smart photos, but also the contents of articles. To select information from many different sources helps us to form our own opinion and thus to see our world more critically. Reading books improve imagination and train brains; we need them also when being senior citizens.

          Happy Monday!

          • I completely agree with you; these smartphones are a disaster (apart from the positive sides!) Reading books also trains perseverance.
            It was very good to hear your opinion.
            Happy Tuesday. Martina

  29. It is a golden autumn photograph. A photograph of the scenery is beautiful. A humorous wood carving is very wonderful and likes wood carvings of Nome.
    There is the wooden doll called a pretty kokeshi doll in Japan, but is much smaller.
    There are many populations that there is it to the moose vomits, producing it.
    I want to see golden autumn scenery more.

  37. those wooden ‘sculptures’ are just plain goofy! i’m a bit sad to see the taxi-dermied formerly ‘live things’ — but all in all, you could just as well have been driving through the colorado mountain towns! really — quite a few similarities in regards what’s on display!

    • Betunada: Old Finnish saying says:

      One loves mother, the other loves daughter. From these sceneries the distance to Colorado Springs is 4708 miles / 8577 kilometers by plane! Btw, have thought that Sonkamuotka is in the North. Distance from Fairbanks to Arctic Circle is 206 mi / 331 km to drive according to Internet. In Finland the distance from Arctic Circle to Sonkamuotka is 126 mi / 203 km. This means that Fairbanks is to the South from Sonkamuotka 332 mi / 534km.
