Under the Ice

This is a photo from a summer we spent 4 days training on glaciers. This from Bødalsbreen  a side arm of Jostalsbreen glacier  where we found this beautiful ice cave. These caves are formed by running water and can be very impressive. However they can also be deadly traps, and one should be very careful entering a cave like this. They can collapse since a glacier is always on the move, or they can in a few seconds be overflooded with water.

This is not Mars or some other exotic planet. It’s good old earth. More precisely it’s Seltun on Iceland. A volcanic area in the Reykjanes penisuela.

The Incredible Story about the Mummified Munk
In 2012, on my way from the Na Muang waterfalls, driving along the ring road on Tropical island Koh Samui outside Thailand I met an interesting munk, a dead munk. He was sitting only 50 metres away from the main road bathing in the sun.  His name is Loung Pordaeng, and as far as I know he still sits there.  He died for about 30 years ago,  sitting in a meditation position. When I was there he was sitting in that same position and his body shows few signs of any major decay considering the heat and the strong sun he was exposed for.  The temple and the other munks claim that nothing is done to his body expect the bizzare fact that he now sits there with some pretty cool sun glasses that he was given when his eyes fell out.In his final seven days of mortal life, he no longer spoke to anyone or ate or drank anything, concentrating solely on his mediation and the path to enlightenment. He died a week later in the same position that we can see him sitting in nowadays. He is still sitting in the original position of his meditation.
