A second installment reaches us from Carl Nordlunds expedition to the New North, this time from Abborrträsk. Here, Moonhose #2.9 posing on a cousin on July 11.
Today we record a new record. On July 11, 2013 Moonhouse #2.9 ventured farther north on its expedition to Arvidsjaur than any expedition before it. The weather conditions in Arvidsjaur were so severe that a new method to secure the house against the wind had to be invented.
Congratualtions Carl on your successful expedition and fair winds (!) on your coming adventures.
Most experienced explorers are aware that the house somestimes suffers from being somewhat light weight and gets caught by the wind. The analogy to the the Three little pigs and the house made from straw being blown away by the huffing and puffing wolf is not far off. Carl Nordlund has the kindness to share the remedy he found for the problem on his expedition to Arvidsjaur. Carl filled the Moonhouse with rocks, Moonhouse Rocks! We all knew that it does of course but many of us mightn’t have related it to Huffin’ ’n’ Puffin’. Thank you Carl for sharing.
Moonhouse #2.9 -. The Budapest is now in Sweden. Explorer Carl Nordlund brought it along from Budapest and seized the opportunity to document the journey en route from Budapest to Stockholm. This is possibly the first documented expedition on thin air.
Congratulations Carl your successful expedtion and fair winds for your and Moonhouse #2.9’s coming adventures.
Ich bin ein Hamburger! Ronald Reagan famously put it when he visited Berlin. Now the house can proudly say so too. Carl Nordlund brought house #2.9 to the University of Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany on May 26, 2013. Why the house is posing with the Sunbelt poster is unclear but maybe, and unknown to the author of this post, Hamburg is know as the Sunbelt in Germany.
Carl Nordlund brought house #2.9 – ”The Budapest” to Riverside California, USA. While there Carl was awarded a The World Foundation Society Award for his work: ”Preceeding and Governing Measurements: An Emmanuelian Conceptualization of Ecological Unequal Exchange”. Congratulations Carl to the award and for the successful completion of the first Moonhouse Expedition across the Atlantic Ocean.
On the ongoing expedition, the Moonhouse has reached Hungary. Carl Nordlund brings the house to the Chain Bridge in Budapest. The Bridge was the first permanent bridge across the Danube and was considered an engineering wonder when it was completed in 1849. Wikipedia informs us that ”It has asserted an enormous significance in the country’s economic, social and cultural life, much as the Brooklyn Bridge has in New York and United States of America.”
The Moonhouse and the Chain Bridge have much in common as engineering wonder and significance to civilisation.
House #2.9, which is yet to be named, is on its way to Budapest, Hungary. Budapest could be the first stop on a tour of European Capitals.
