FAROE FRIDAY: FIRST LADY FEVER

So this guy named Rasmussen was the Prime Minister of Denmark but he left to become the head of NATO, so this other guy named Rasmussen became Prime Minister and now Denmark has a Faroese First Lady.*

Sólrun Løkke Rasmussen, is the first Faroese woman to be the First Lady of Denmark. She has three children who all have Faroese names and she's reportedly related to the man who wrote the Faroese National Anthem.

(*There has been some debate online over the title of "first lady" and whether it applies to Ms. Løkke Rasmussen. But for purposes of this blog post, I think you all know what I mean.)

This week's Faroe Photo is from Sumba and was taken by Oda Andreasen. Sumba is on the island of Suduroy and is the southernmost village on the Faroes. Suduroy is considered to have the most gentle landscape of in all of the Faroes, but as you can see, it's still pretty dramatic.

The photo was taken during Oda's Easter travels. So "Happy Easter" to all my friends in the Faroes.
