The arrival at the North Cape

On Monday, the 15th of July the party continues by sea from Alattio to the North Cape which they finally reach at the end of the week. They stay on the island for a couple of hours and leave by a different route. They stop by at the island of Måsöy and at Hammerfest. Even in these little villages they meet priests and merchants. The party is back in Alattio for the weekend.

Acerbi stops in Alattio for over a week. He makes observations and acquaints himself with the local life. In the beginning of August the party start their journey back. In Enontekiö they read in the guest book of vicar Erik Grape a recent greeting for them from Edward Daniel Clarke. Two globetrotters have been close to meet each other in Enontekiö in Finnish Lapland.
