Well, coming home from the fire fighting course Tuesday afternoon and my friend is on his way to Germany for his holiday and my other friend is in Kalmar. Göteborg and here is exactly nothing to do when they are away. My friend in Kalmar will return back tomorrow afternoon so I can pick him up at the train station.

Wednesday 3rd of June 2009 and I called the company after breakfast.
- The ship will arrive in Göteborg at 13:00 so you can join them in the afternoon.
Very good, I will not have to spend another day in Göteborg. But it would have been nice to meet my friend when he is coming home from Kalmar.

I went to the dry cleaner next door to pick up my shirts and I returned to my room and I started to pack my things getting ready to leave for the ship.
