Today I’ve been working on blog some more. I’ve almost finished gallery, you can’t enlarge photos yet, but hopefully I’ll manage to do that tomorrow.

On the other news I’ve finally managed to buy a bike. I’ve got it from some Swedish guy for 500 SEK. He said he’ll buy it back in December when I’m going home, so total price will be cheaper still. The bike is basic with only 1 gear but it has a light (which will come in handy in few months) and I got a bike lock for free. It’s a good bike for price although I’ll probably struggle with it when it comes to slopes, thankfully there aren’t that many around here.

When I came home I met my new roommate. He’s from France so I’ll probably be able to buy another bridge or a river (internal joke).

One week since I came to Sweden.

Today it has been raining so I decided to stay at home and work on blog, instead of going out again. I’ve managed to create “index” of posts for easier navigation and have overridden home page so it shows as Lulea. I’ve finally managed to create edit post function, but I’m too tired now to go and correct all previous posts.

Today afternoon my new roommate has arrived so I’m not alone anymore. We exchanged few words and cleaned refrigerator (ok, he did most of the work) :). He’s from Germany as usually I didn’t get the name, will have to ask again tomorrow.

It’s been one week since I’m in Sweden now. I still can’t get used to the cold, I don’t remember when was the last time I was wearing long shirt and pants in the middle of summer while being at home. So far it has been quite exhausting and not everything was as I expected it to be (mainly internet problem and dorm room).
