To maloutim: rollon

Thank you Marie-Louise,
Yes I saw your reply. I was wondering about that name, which sounds very un-Scandinavian. It seems he was originally named Hrólfr, which today would be Rolf. It's not...

To macjake: red face

Thanks Craig,

To rychem: not crowded

Thank you Ryszard,
I think a crowded Indian train looks better on TV and is what Western audiences expect to see. Also, this area is not so heavily populated, and maybe most important is that you...
