Year 9 Day 201
I have been following the western coastline, which is forested and cut by deep fjords. It is getting quite cold at night, and the deciduous trees are starting to change color. I am glad that I traded for furs as I did, and that Rainbow was able to make them into warm clothing – I need it here. In fact, I have reached the point when I envy some of the predators their coats. Especially the large one I saw today.
It had the teeth of a carnivore, but it was stuffing itself on dried berries. Luckily I can levitate, because when I inadvertently disturbed it in its feeding, I thought for a moment it was going to attack me in spite of the warnoff. Once I was out of its reach the warnoff took effect, and it went back to feeding. But the northern hunters must regard this animal as their greatest enemy.
I didn’t try to trade for the larger skins, though now I have a better idea of their origin.
Jarn’s Journal is the journal of a human-like alien marooned in Africa some 125,000 years ago, in the interglacial period preceding our own. He has made friends with some of our African ancestors, and observed their Neanderthal cousins in Europe. He is now trying to find the northern icecap he thought he saw from space, traveling along the coast of what is now Norway.
