A WEEK OF SKATING IN MALLORCA, SPAIN (Day 1)
by Daniel Edman of Stockholm, Sweden

When I check in at the Arlanda Airport, I realize I have met most of my fellow skaters before, but I have never seen most of them in normal street clothes. They sure look very different than they did in the skating outfits that I normally see them wearing.

Check-in runs smoothly and a couple of hours later we arrive on Mallorca in due time, although the landing is quite bumpy due to windy conditions. Once out of the terminal building we notice clear traces of a heavy rain, and the weather does not look too promising at this stage. The weather has been bad for a couple of days we hear, but the forecast indicates that better weather is on the way, so we are not too concerned.

At the Airport we also meet with Jonas, a fellow Swede from the southern part of Sweden who we have not met before and who flew in on a separate flight. The transfer bus takes us across Mallorca and an hour later we arrive in Port dŽAlcudia and the Laguna Hotel, which is going to be our home for the week to come.

During the rather confused hotel check in we find the sleeping Kathie Fry on one of the hotel lobby couches. We wake her up and she is smiling and looks happy although it is almost mid night.

We are all quite tired and head for our rooms/beds as fast as possible, but before we split Johan (the organizer as well as guide) sets tomorrow's departure to 10 a.m. Me, Totte, Esko, and Klas are lucky having Kathie staying with us in our apartment. This makes us feel even more international than the rest!
