Sweden, 1989, Nordic folk

HedningarnaHedningarna: Join the Vistani at their campfire. They welcome strangers, especially since they are strangers in this northern land. Dance with them as the gypsies play on rustic instruments light enough to accompany them forever on their sojourn, and when the mists creep in too closely, the raunie rises and dances, weaving an enchantment to hold the mists at bay. As the children go to sleep and the fiddles cry a wordless lullaby, stare with the other travelers into the embers of the fire and contemplate the morrow–for the Vistani will be gone with the rising of the sun, and not even the memory of their passing will remain.
