Dear followers, My coat is stained forever with grease, oil, and dirt. Not even the strongest Swedish washing machine could get it out. Proof positive of an adventure of a lifetime from this morning! Curious what caused my coat stains!? Try a 64 meter climb (some 210+ feet) to the VERY TIP TOP of an electric windmill! We lounged out on top to stare right in the face of the large blades (not moving though!) and were eye level with about twelve other windmills! Exhilirating!? Totally! The amazement that Peter, Dennis, Beth, and I experienced is beyond words. Our photos from the top look like they were Photo-Shopped! They'll be posted soon....once I get a hold of Beth's memory card!!! 😊
We're now in Halmstad after having finished the day with a fine presentation in Falkenberg and a fascinating tour of one of Sweden's most advanced fire stations. Aside from sitting inside fire engines and walking through training areas, most notably we got to slide down the firemen's pole! (Hence the subject above!)
Once again, the opportunities presented to us are astounding....let the pictures do the talking!
We're the 2008 GSE team from Rotary District 5580 (USA & Canada) touring District 2400 in southern Sweden! We're having a fabulous time thus far and are amazed at the opportunities we're given! Thank you for checking in on us!
