Every day early in the morning, Yastad takes his son on a 16-kilometer route to the manger before he is called by tourists who come to visit the popular rock “Troll’s Language”. Taxis Focus RS is also popular with locals who nicknamed it “Blue Lightning” – because of its characteristic coloration and dynamic performance.
