This is the only traffic I encountered along the 5 km stretch of forest
that connects Hévíz to Keszthely, Hungary.

Before heading down the pathway, I asked a local woman:

Any wild animals that should concern me?

No, she said, then laughed, and looked at me funny.

Always been curious about the High Arctic.
Hadn’t occurred to me I’d fly atop it on my journey to Europe.

After a nap, I look out the window–ice floes everywhere.
Baffin Island. Baffin Bay. Greenland. Norwegian Sea.

In-flight TV monitor reads:
Minus 86 degrees celsius at over 35,000 feet.

Who owns this car? Who adorned it like this?

I wait for a while, no one appears.

I don’t have proof, but assume they look like their car, the reverse, or something else …

Me:

“What was it like for you during the Olympics?”

Driver:

“It was good. I liked it. No grumpy people.”
