It was a rainy and repugnant day on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. I talked to the man why he keeps fishing and he explained to me that this is also a bad weather for fishing and he also said that he keeps fishing until he catches a nice one for lunch for him and his wife as they have nothing else to eat. This struggle versus the forces of nature and the endurance of the old man impressed me quite a lot and for me this represents the theme of this challenge the best.
