We ate Rudolph

... other cultures see it as a bridge between the living and the dead. After we pulled up at an old school in the middle of nowhere that the tour company uses as a sort of base camp, we had to climb a hill in very, very rocky terrain, which did my ankles no favours. At the top of the hill we sat on upturned logs under a cloudy sky and waited. And waited. And waited. Nothing. After a while, Antony told us to take some photos of the north sky, just in case we caught ...

... of Santa, but you can buy the photo they take of you sitting with him - for a cheap 39 Euro for the digital version! I politely declined a copy of the photo, but I chatted to Santa (who has a Finnish accent) and talked about my trip so far. There's also a small hut which is a memorial to the original town of Lapland which was destroyed as the Germans retreated to Norway during World War II, the sombre side of Santa's Village I suppose.

Didn't take a lot of notice - but I did see them! Not enough time to get a photo - the bus was ...

... walk into town!

We crossed the massive bridge into town and the river under it was completely frozen, bar a few pools of turbulent water. We walked along gazing upon all the Christmas lights that illuminated the main street. Finally we found somewhere for dinner and after we booked a snowmobile, husky and reindeer safari for Wednesday! AWESOME!

We finished our day by walking home and hitting the sack, excited little kids to see Santa tomorrow!

The trip with student union to Lapland was different. First of all, I actually went alone, because there were 3 trips, but my Erasmus' friends got into different groups than I did. But this trip was so cool, and I am happy I didn't get afraid and I didn't quit, just because I was alone.
From the place we lived to Lapland is looong way. First we took overnight train (first time in my life) and then bus, by witch we ...
