hi, Jay from IST checking in from a rainy jamboree site. The contingents arrived without incident yesterday and got set up. I continue work in IST Info Center. Picture is a couple of my colleagues. Has been raining steadily all day long! Had an interesting lunch, learning from my colleague, Ulf Anderson of Sweden. Got talking about Swedish customs at Christmas time. Swede’s favorite thing to do at 3:00 pm on Christmas Eve is for everyone to watch ‘Donald Duck’s Christmas’ on TV.  Then lots of good food and dancing around the Christmas tree. Yeah, then church services start at 4:00 am on Christmas day. This is a unique opportunity to meet fellow Scouts from the whole world, and learn about there customs and culture — and no, we are not all alike, and all the better for it. Happy Scouting.
