Who's Who

Who's Who
The man in the blue shirt is my host's father, a Gotland native who has been involved in tåckartings since the practice was revived in the 1950s. It's thanks to him that I was allowed onto the roof myself.

The man with the yellow workpants is the grandson of the man who led the revival of grass roofs on Gotland in the 1950s. He was something of a foreman for our area of the roof, yelling instructions and periodically checking our work.
