Wooden cell phone

When I visited our cabin at Norefjell this weekend I found a wooden cell phone.

 

On the flat backside one can find an integrated bottle opener.

 

Great stuff!

 

Propagandalf told me that our mom (we have the same one as he's my brother) bought it in Karasjok when she visited a short while ago.

 

Karasjok (Kárášjohka in Northern Sami, Kaarasjoki in Finnish) is a township and municipality in the county of Finnmark, Norway.

 

The municipality is situated along the upper river basin of the Deatnu / Tana river, and its tributaries Anárjohka and Kárášjohka, and includes large tracts of the high plateau of Finnmarksvidda. The river valley, unlike the plateau, is covered with pine and birch forest

 

In this far northeastern part of Norway, climate is much more continental and dry compared to the typical coastal climate in Norway. Situated in a river valley on this plateau, Karasjok has recorded the coldest temperature ever in Norway: -51.4C on January 1., 1886. The warmest temperature ever recorded in the summer is 32.4°C. In January 1999, there was also a cold shock, the "official" temperature recording was -51.2C, but unofficially a temperature of -52C was recorded. The warmest month on record was July 1941, with a mean (24hr) temperature of 17.9°C, and the coldest month was February 1966 with a mean of -27.1°C.
