On Leaving America - Part 5

A vast majority of homes in Sweden are painted red, though this seems to be becoming less traditional. There are copper mines that make the paint, some really big ones. One’s in Falun, twenty minutes from the town where we will be.
The mine below must have been one of the worst places on earth to work. Going through it was creepy.
Can you imagine pushing this thing around 12 hours a day? Half of Sunday off if you could prove you went to church.  
It’s been reported that the present Swedish workweek has hit a record high — 26.2 hours
                                                   I'm moving 15 years to late!

  1. Yea, but think what all had to be accomplished in those 26.2 hours! You may have rather preferred the 40-hr work week here. LOL:>)
