Back to life. Back to reality
Hi everyone! I'm back from denial (charter holiday in Gran Canaria, looking very pregnant in ridiculous hat, not my most elegant moment). We had a wonderful time, sun and pool all along.
* Scandinavians don't talk to eachother on charter holiday. Any ideas why? I presume a combination of uncertainty of social status at home, (he could be a carpenter, he could be a manager) and general shyness (openness and smalltalk is not for Scandinavians). We swore we'd act differently, but ended up like everyone else. It's a little bit sad.
* Las Palmas is a beautiful capital. Had the best lunch ever at "El Herreno". I got my squid, and it was heavenly.
* Reading Michel Houellebecqs disturbing novel on tourism "Platform" is interesting on a holiday like this. I recommend it. Or not.
* Spring not sprung in the Arctic as I imagined in my holiday euphoria. Will it ever? Read my next chapter in a couple of days!
