Phew! I’ve fallen a bit behind, so it’s time to do some catching up. This was for a couple of reasons, not my slackness I hope you realise. Well…
Anyway, posting in Scandinavia became problematic for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, time in an internet café was expensive. Secondly, they weren’t really conducive to blog-ing. Generally they were impersonal: unstaffed, put money in a slot, get a password, and use a PC with Internet Explorer and not much else. No Skype, no download of camera, no download of any applications. I think this is because everyone in techno savvy Scandinavia is mobile. They all use internet and Skype from their mobile phones. The staffed internet cafes had a few PCs tucked away in the corner, but acres of PCs all networked for computer games. Thirdly, I had better things to do!
Anyway, the next posting (below) has been re-titled by adding (Revisited). That’s because as part of my catch-up I’ve gone back to it, added some photos, a few more lines, and corrected typos and spelling errors that got included in the rush.
So, if you have read it without the (Revisited) you might want to have another look –maybe. And if it’s your first visit you’ll be none the wiser. And the way it happens, you’ve probably got to here through my catch up stories.
