Something Is Happening - Part II

This is a post which follows a previous one some weeks ago. This is the second part of our wanted travel to Finland, a post in which I continued wondering what we were going to find when we arrived to Lapland.

"I don't know what we are going to find when we get to Kemi. Rain? Snow? Three days after cancelling our trip on the ice breaker the only thing the crew says is that.... it's raining.... It could see something usual if we don't know where Kemi is, even we could think such event is something punctual, but I don't think so. It takes an hour and a half to go from Kemi to the Artic Circle using not a high speed train of course.

As I said in my last mail, in the very beginning of December, it should be an ice sheet of 40 kms long. Now it's nothing at all.. I think the issue is not a silly thing. Anyway, below, I let you the last mail from the ice breaker crew (pay attention to the suspension points next to the word 'raining')

Good morning Pedro
Yes we have received you e-mail. You are wellcome to Sampo to have a lunch.
Do you want that we return the difference of amount on Sampo in cash or shall we return to your credit card (which we have charged) ?

Hi Maija-Liisa, have you received my e-mail to confirmate the booking for
four persons?

Have a nice,


P.D. What is weather like? Has it become freezing already?"

The question just now is: Will we have at the end of this summer a new record in Artic ice sheet melting?

That's all for today. See you.
