why salted herring
why salted herring? i come from finland, and i love herring. i love any kind of herring, salted, grilled, pickled, smoked, plain, in mustard sauce, with dill, spiced with horseradish, you name it. but i’m crazy about salted herring that you buy at a candy store, in a small bag, the black salted licorice kind. so, what else could i ever name this blog, hmm, or maybe the blog is the ‘red herring’?
is about mundane wanderings with iggy, spiced with art and photography
from mid september 2009 salted herring has been blogging on dry land in central mexico. iggy is at home in san francisco with sam.
