... job, but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Only after we had done this did we go inside for some coffee and cookies.
The main cabin has a kitchen, living area with a dining room table and one bedroom with eight bunk beds. Another group had already move into that room, so we settled into some of the adjacent cabins. We relaxed a bit, exchanged stories of previous travels and got to know our fellow travellers a bit better. Åsa also told us more about her job in the mine ...

Anyway, when your night-time toliet is 50 metres across the snow in sub-zero temperatures, you really don't want a bladder full of fizzy lager.
