Yes, that is my leg. And yes, I cut myself five hours before departing to Norway. Don’t ask how it happened, it is was too embarrassing.
At first it did not look that bad. But when after a while it did not stop to bleed I went to my brother’s (he is a doctor) who to my surprise told me that he would put at least three stitches. My flight goes in about 30 minutes, at 7.45 pm. When my brother told me the “great” news it was 5 pm.
With no time in spare we had to decide quickly. And since too many responsibilities during the expedition lie on me (navigation, fishing and hunting) I could not leave my team without me.
So this had to happen.
I hope I will be able to walk with them at least half of the way to obtain enough food and give them a crash course in navigating before (maybe) going back.
I will keep you up to date.
