A northern experience
Back from Järvsö, 2 cables short and many mosquito bites richer. It was indeed a beautiful place, worth the long journey, and quite a few happy, northern fans showed up to see us play as the finishing act of "Älvdansen". Great to see you!
We are aparently getting old, which became very obvious to us yesterday. During sound check a young guy walks up to the stage, turns to Lisa and says (and this has to be written in Swedish because it sounds SO much funnier then):
"Ursäkta damen, men kommer ni spela någon polka?"
OK we are getting closer to 30, but come on...... "Damen"?!?!
The other three of us had a really hard time keeping a straight face as Lisa ignored the insult and kindly told him that unfortunately there wont be any polkas!
As ladies we did not go to the disco tent after the gig, to hang out with the teenagers, but went to the hotel bar instead. It felt more right at that moment.
Today we feel young and vital again!
