I wish they could leave the time alone.
I really don’t like the change of time, today I woke up at three am. For three weeks I’ve started an hour earlier every morning so I’ve been up around 4:40 in the morning and today we went back to normal hours which means I can sleep an hour longer but my brain really didn’t understand that so we woke up an hour earlier than last week 🙂 I wish they just stopped this nonsense.
But I did get a beautiful sunrise right in my eyes when I drove to work and a beautiful sunset when I drove home. it was more or less pitch black when I came home and since I couldn’t find any flashlight we never took any walk after work. I’ll have one tomorrow, restless dogs is no fun to have indoors 🙂
Lots of refugees are coming to Sweden now, mostly people from Syria but also from the other war hit countries nearby like Afghanistan and Iraq. So many are coming that we now have problems to find any places for them to live. I heard of one place far north called Riksgränsen (something like the border of the kingdom or realm). It is a rather well known place to go skiing downhill but the hotels don’t open up until February so there are plenty of space to stay at right now.
The refugees like it but the reporter described the place like “Something from the book The Shining 🙂 🙂 🙂 Almost no people live up there and this time of year it’s shut down and deserted and I can understand how he was thinking but lets hope it stays by that 🙂 We also have lots of poor people from south-eastern Europe here begging outside populated areas like stores. I’ve seen photos and reportage on tv that shows how they live in their home countries so I can fully understand why they go up here to get some money, they really have no hope where they are living.
We even have a lady sitting outside the grocery store in the village where I work. We talk Swedish with her and she answers in her language 🙂 Many of these beggars are threatened and abused but so far this woman has been treated well. I guess those who hated these people forgot about them now when all the refugees comes, I guess it is hard to spread the hate towards several groups at the same time. Many of these people from southern Europe have realised that people tend to be kinder to them if they instead of begging sell things instead, so now many weave baskets or make other things that they sell to people passing by. I doubt however that this would work as well in such a small village as the one I work in.
It is time to make something to eat and then some tv I think. No photos from today since it was dark when I came home.
Have a great day!
