Today we visited a museum and learned a bit more about the history of the region where I was born. I can only say that I’m happy that I didn’t live in those times, I don’t think I would have managed to work that hard.
I also bought a book called “kockar” (Cooks) which described the women who worked as cooks for the lumberjacks. I also learned that each lumberjack ate about 5500 calories/day … and they were not fat !!
