No, not the band, the lack of light! It's dark when I go to work in the morning and dusk when I go home, and it's only october! Winter in Sweden is nothing I recommend...:(

Look at it this way, Sofie - only 49 more days until winter begins - then the days start getting longer!! (It's the only way I make it thought the shortened daylight hours anymore!! It gives me something to look forward to - more daylight!!!!!!) ;)

Not so bad here (on the road here) yet, although Hokkaido was getting dark increasingly quick. Heard from the guys in our Northern office the other day - for the Swedish based amongst you, near Gallivare - who are already in deep gloom for most of the day, and just settling in for what promises to be a long and cold winter, and folks in my base (Kristianstad) are already begining to grumble as well...

yeah, guess I better cheer up, we do have extremely dark and short winter days in Sweden, but we also have amazingly bright summernights, so I shouldn't complain, right? ;)

Bonfires just don't have the same appeal when you are alreay hot and sweaty. But, they are wonderful when your hands and feet are cold and the air is crisp!!!! Just don't put your feet, still in your shoes or boots, too close to the flame - you can't get that smell of burning rubber out of your nose for hours!!! (And beware of others shaking their burning marshmallows on a stick around wildly - it will leave a scar - forever!!!)
