Sweden here we come!

Off to Sweden on Saturday, hopefully bi-skiing and if not then just ski-karting. very excited…

One thought on “Sweden here we come!”

  1. HELLO TOM! AND ELLEN!
    NEVER FEEL YOU ARE LOGGING YOUR LIFE INTO OUTER SPACE BECAUSE SOONER OR LATER i WILL ENJOY READING YOUR DIARY HERE!
    I hope you had a great time in Sweden and didn’t do utterly over the top things on steep snowy surfaces.
    my keyboard returned from Indian fieldwork with jumping key syndrome so I will make this short.

    I had a life changing spell in the field – probably the final fieldwork I do – on the economy of a small town as a waste producing system.
    it would be nice to show you the photos.
    (I tried to copy one here but t won’t transfer)

    Anyway in a small town in the south I saw things that have been invisible to me for 45 years.
    Thousands of people get livelihoods at near starvation level from sorting waste.
    There is a huge economy of pigs, cattle, goats and hundreds of very fat dogs living off it too.
    There are dreadful sanitation problems too. basically the entire town’s foul and liquid waste is pouring into what used to be a fine lake.
    Anyway I just returned feeling very lucky.
    love to
    you both / all , Barbara
