Summer in Kiruna
Summer in Kiruna exists. Truely. Okay, it's 6°C right now, but the midnight sun is shining in my bedroom, it hasn't snowed for a month and at day it can actually be comfortably warm (like 17°C). The trees are expulsing their pollen like madmen, they have only a couple of weeks of growing season after all, and this week we had a proper thunderstorm, with lightning, thunder and rain that makes you wet not in five hours, not in five minutes, but actually in five seconds. Apparently, that's possible in Kiruna.
Below are some pictures I took yesterday. As usual, more pictures at my panoramio albums. All pictures are taken between 23:30 and 01:30.
