The 411th winter market is now taking place in central Jokkmokk. I am just about to go for a first walk through the area, and the weather looks great. It is a bit cloudy, but the sun appears at times – and the temperature is around 12 degrees Celsius. Just perfect conditions for the first market day. I will return with photos from the market later, and I’m also hoping to get to the reindeer race at 14:00 to get some photos and videos. Other plans for the day is to visit the Sami Education Center to see the exhibition of handicraft made by students, one thing I never miss during the winter market.
