Erik’s sister and family are off on their five-month European sailing trip. The three children have homework to do during the first part of the trip, when they would ordinarily be in school. All five family members are contributing to a WordPress blog they call Burning Cloud. Four write their posts in English; the youngest sometimes writes in Danish. The entries are a lot of fun to read.
Here is the oldest child’s May 11 post:
this is a word for word conversation.
Klara : the first qustion is, why are we not moving
Klaus: because we are waiting for our gear to come back from the repair shop
Klara : the second question is: when are we going to move?
Klaus: on Friday
Klara: the third question is: what is wrong with the motor?
Klaus: the gear is leaking a bit of oil.
Karl-Oscar: how will they fix the gear?
Klaus : it will be repaired in Køge with some spare parts that are cominng form Gottenburg.
