    ... to pick up our leftovers is never heard here. All those plastic bottles of specialized cleaning products that I'm sure populate the shelf below your sink are non-existent here and are replaced by the simple cake of "do it all" soap. Toilet paper is an endangered specie as we're told that the sewage system is not capable of the paper waste. Most toilets we have seen/used will have what's called a "bum gun."

    ... with Bob, Geri and Peder on our last evening there , not a late crazy one as we had a train to catch at 2 am on the 19th Dec.

    After Martin's last night out with Peder - ending at 6.30 am ( yes another ear bashing for Martin !) where Peder lost his shoes and he told me Martin fell asleep in the bar , I was not keen on them being left alone !
