now, one hour sailing and right in front us is christiansoe, very exciting. 45 families live here permanently and of course a daily influx of tourists like us invade  the tiny island, however, tough rules, only six rooms at the grocery store ( local inn ) and a couple of cells at the local prison, are converted to "hotel rooms", though the key is on the inside, nice feeling.
