We already have two pretty noisy bands on board.
Now we have a baby too. A real one.
So what do we do now?
Let’s talk about the weather!
When we left Estonia (as good Vikings do, on Thursday), it was warm in Lappland, freezing in Miami and a reasonable minus 20 centigrades in Estonia. A massive amount of snow, too – probably 30 cm everywhere you
went. Very strange things happened: there were masses of adult people lined outside shops anxious to buy their first pair of modern cross-country skis and then learning to use them. So we wondered if the same thing is going on right now around Groningen’s speed-skating stores. Is this the year we finally can walk on water in this beautiful city? We will find out soon. Hopefully tomorrow.
