sweden, day 05 (0 comments)
after getting up at around 09:30 and not much sleep due to the new year's eve celebrations the night before we were heading to the meeting point for the dog sledge tour we booked for this day. again we met thomas, the guy we had much fun with since we arrived here at the hostel. he was giving instructions on how to put on the dog's harnesses and how to tie the dogs to the sledge. all people were divided into two groups. the first group started with the dogs while the other group was brought to some other meeting point with some ski-doo where the groups were switching then. i was in the group to start with the sledge. so there are four dogs keeping on running all the time, only stopped by a break you can step on with one foot while the other one resides on the sledge so you don't fall off. branches of trees and huge bumps on the trail made it quite hard in the beginning to stay on the sledge, but after a while one got used to it and felt quite comfortable riding the sledge. since there were more sledges for each group than people i could stay on the sledge when the groups shifted. i really enjoyed it and it was great fun. the girls also had a lot of fun, but more with the ski-doo ride over bumpy trails rather than with going with the sledge.
the pretty interesting thing was the fact that the dogs ate feces from other dogs. the guys told us it's because there's still a lot of useful thing in the turds the dogs can digest. but only the first poop after having eaten. the second round they leave untouched. i didn't bring my camera to the tour since i thought it's too dangerous for the equipment. i thought it would break if i fall off the sledge. but actually i never did. sonja took some pictures with her camera. i will try to put them online as soon as possible.
