One week later

yeah well, it hasn’t been one week yet since it’s Sunday evening and we came here on Monday evening, but it’s a bit slow at work atm, so I might as well write a couple of lines …

So, what’s happened? Well, first of all I’m starting to get used to my work, a bit hard in the beginning, but I’m slowly but surely getting used to all the new routines here. I’ve made several new friends; I just love the way how all the season-workers takes care of each other down here, it’s like a little family…

There is also starting to arrive more and more tourists. I spoke to a guide at Fritidsresor and she told me that all their flights from Scandinavia is fully booked so they’re actually adding additional flights to fill the demand, it’s gonna be a packed summer down here …

Weather is still great, really hot during the day and very cold during the evenings. The last time I’ve been here as a tourist you always sweated like a pig, now I’m almost freezing … hehe, I guess I’m going to look back on this period later this summer and think, damn … I miss those cold days …
