Hello, dear reader! Here at my blog you will find glimpses of joy, Stockholm, my numerous museum visits, funny and serious stuff worth noticing - all in journalese and sometimes in Swedish. With this also comes a pinch of analyses and reflections. This is a dynamic blog, meaning I sometimes go back in the archive and update the posts. If you are following my blog from a phone, click on "View web version" at the bottom of the page - it facilitates the reading. Enjoy! /Jana :)

...and then the floodings came
So glad to have come to this part of Spain. They have mini monsoons here - it rains rarely, but when it does, red alerts can happen. Some schools have cancelled all classes as you have to cross outdoor pools to enter, roads can be covered with uknown amounts of water and teachers can't come (depth is hard to predict when it just looks like a lake) and electricity can be gone from time to time. Thunder is frequent. Garages underground become dangerous, because they can be filled with the water rinning down. And I find it all very exciting! This photo is from Thursday, when the rain just started off a little.
