Yesterday it rained all day long!It was cold, wet and windy. Totally awful weather to be outside in so we stayed indoors. It turned out to be a perfect day to go and see an exhibition at the musum of antrophology that I had wanted to see about Vodou. It was really interessting. Vodou is not about sticking needles into dolls as you might think at first even if it is often portraied like that in movies. It is quite a complex mix of African religions with catholisism. I felt I learnt a lot about both Vodou and got a great introduction into the history of Haiti where Vodou is mainly practised.
Today the rain has continued on and off. I had difficulty this morning trying to decide wether to take my bike or play it safe and take the subway. In the end I took the bike and now I just hope and keep my fingers crossed that I will not get all wet on my way home. The rain was pouring down outside just a few minutes ago but now it stopped and the sun is shining. What everyone is talking about now is what the weather will be like for midsummer which is Friday this week. We are heading south on Thursday to Öland (an island located off the eastern Swedish coast). We will be celebrating midsummer with friends there at their summer cabin. We have been there once before and it is a great place. You got the ocean on walking distance and it is just beautiful. Hopefully the weather will be nice so that we can sit outside and enjoy the day and evening.
