Winter is over
Today it is 15 degrees celsius. The coastal areas are flooding because the snow is melting rapidly here. I'm wearing shorts and sandals.
It's also Valborgsafton, the day before 1 May. Traditionally a fire, majbrasa, is made. In Kiruna, this is done at the foot of the Luossavaara hill. I went there. I had never seen such a big crowd in Kiruna. But the fire itself was awful.
