Pelting rain last night but no leakage into my tent. It was raining when I woke up and it looked as if I’d be pinned down in my tent. A wonderful breakfast of tuna fish and rock-hard bread. Finally a bit of sun so I packed up and split. A 2 km walk to the main road with a milk break on the way. It was freezing cold. The fourth lift was with a guy my age and his sister. We stopped at his house and had some coffee. I mentioned I liked milk and he went down to the cold cellar and brought a can of milk fresh from the cow and it was delicious. We continued North to Kolari and I was left off there. It was so cold I wrapped myself in my Greek blanket. I ended up in Muonio which is 100 kms north of the Arctic Circle. $3.00 a night at the youth hostel. There were only two other people there an Aussie and a Swede. We went out to drink some beer. The conversation and the beer were excellent. We returned and continued chatting finishing my bottle of vodka I brought over from Poland.
