Sommer i maj / Summer in May
Jeg har mødt mange der har taget hul på badesæsonen. Det har jeg ikke. Det blev til det her, og det er fint nok til mig. Jeg syntes ikke det er såååå varmt endnu, nemlig. På den anden side synes jeg Middelhavet er for varmt. Jeg er ikke nem at gøre tilfreds.
My memory of summer last year is a few single days with a bit of warmth, and otherwise a bit cold and grey. (Well. Apart from when I was in Michigan. THEIR summer is so great!) So the early summer this year brings is extra welcome!
I met a lot of people who started the bathing season. Not me. I only got this far, and that's enough for me. I don't think the water is that warm yet, you know. On the other hand, the Mediterranean Sea is too hot for me. I'm not easily satisfied.
This Thursday, our team went to a colleague's place, right by the beach. There was the most beautiful sunset over the Danish side, and overall, it has been the best weather! Warm enough to sit on the balcony as often as I can, warm enough to go cycling, warm enough for ice cream. I love it!
På vej hjem i går kunne man godt mistænke, at det var et af de varme tog! Eller at jeg i virkeligheden sad i et tog sydpå. (Jeg så nu aldrig nogle palmer i toget i Tanzania eller i Israel, så måske ikke.)
It has actually been quite hot enough for the trains. Apparently. I guess they need some kind of excuse for being delayed, because commuting these last weeks really trained my patience-muscle. The week before last week, a train got stuck. The aircondition stopped working, and since the windows can't be opened, it got quite hot. So the passengers decided to WALK the 200 meters to the station. Then the Øresund Bridge was closed for trains. For a few hours. (Very shortly, I wondered about moving to Bornholm. That very day it didn't feel like the commuting hours wouldn't get much longer!)
On the way home yesterday, it shortly seemed like it was one of the hot trains! Or that I really sat in the South somewhere. (Although I never saw any palms on the train in Tanzania or in Israel, so maybe not.)
