Stuck in Stakkevollan
First off I just have to say that I have found the best drink bar ever! Artur is the King! Try the "Spanish Strawberry" there...
This morning I got to see most of the North side of the island. I didn't plan to, it just happened... I was trying to get to the Uni as early as possible since I still had a lot to write. I just had to go to the post office first. So I planned everything carefully. Go to ICA five to ten, just pick up the package from the post office at 10 sharp, and then run straight to the bus.
But this was apparantly not the day for time saving plans. First I was just running around ICA not quite sure why I was there or what I was looking for. This made me a couple of minutes late for the post office, where half of Tromsø had decided to make an early apperance. I was number 21 in line - and that was not including the business costumers that get to sneak in line. My carefully planned, effective day did not get off to a good start. It could only go one way from here...
..or could it? determined to make up for lost time, I decided to take the first possible bus. 42 goes to the Uni, right..? right...? eh...? I was optimistic until I saw the Uni fly by, and the bus made no attempt to get near it. After a while I understood that it was not going to go by on the way back either. So the busdriver let me off at the end station, and I was stuck in Stakkevollan till bus 20 came and saved me..
Well, quite enough about my day. Time to go get ready to meet Santa at the Finnish party.
