It is rainning now and then during the night.
A nice lie-in, we are not in a hurry.
It is only six kilometers to Staloluokta, and the
helicopter to Ritsem leave five in the afternoon.
We have a strong contrary wind.
The track is easy, we pass soon
the lake Kieddaure. At Luoppal, before descending into the forest, is a
nice view of Virihaure. We arrive at Staloluokta in time for lunch, which
we make in the hut kitchen. We do not feel for walking around, we are missing the
sun, and the wind whine outside the hut.
We sit in the kitchen until the helicopter takes us to Ritsem. In the kitchen
do we recognise a person we met here last year, he his deeply involved in a discussion
with an other guest. Also last year was he fond of talking.
In the helicopter do I get the place with the pilot. The wind is not a
problem, we fly just below the clouds. Now and then do we fly through a cloud.
I enjoy the flight. Only clouds can be seen where Sarek is supposed to be.
We have in advance booked beds at Ritsem youth hostel. That turns out to be good
planning, since the hostel is completely full. We have to share the room with
another guest. We buy hamburgers from the freezer, and prepare them in the
mircowave oven. It is not the most delicious dinner I have had.
