Why did the Gralag Geese (known as Grágágs in Faroese) cross the road? Answer: To find out whether the mizzle was as miserable on the other side.
We drove across to Fámjin on the western edge of Suðuroy to look at the original Faroese flag: which was hidden inside a locked church. On the way back over the hills we stopped to look at these geese. Who obligingly crossed the road to our side, and then turned around and went back again. All the while we were surrounded by fog and buffeted by rain and wind.
