It was one of those evenings again…
I just can’t seem to escape them here… 😉

… of the adventure.
Day one was mostly spent sleeping and recovering from the 30+-hour traveling.
Day two was also still that. I was surprisingly tired. I don’t usually take naps during the day, but I simply had to. Lot of impressions, lots to read, lot of information t process and then two dives.
Two dives, which went totally fine, but -of course- filled with excersize and no camera. Gritting teeth… Several times…
But I will get my pictures!

For now you’ll just have to do with the last remainder of the sunset. I missed it, because I was out cold for two hours.
It’s still pretty, I think. Last night I watched it completely, and it was stunning, but I was too tired to pull out the camera and the tripod. But I’ll be here for about 4 weeks, so I’m sure you’ll see a few sunsets (and/or sunrises) come by.

It’s getting cold. Awhile back it was cold for a couple of days, with a bit of snow that disappeared pretty much instantly. But now temperature’s really dropping and staying down. Driving to the in-laws for dinner on Sunday I could really notice it was slippery. It was a tad bit moist in the air and the temperature was just around 0°C (32F), maybe a bit below. They call it black ice here, because you can’t really see any ice on the road, but it’s really treacherous. This is just around the time that everyone gets surprised by it. Even if you’d think Fins would be aware of the dangers, because they face it every single year, but every single year people underestimate it or don’t expect it and accidents happen.
I got home safe. With lunch *grins*
Best is just to stay at home and light up the fire place…
