Glad you are both unharmed :-). That was entertaining.
Wow, and here I thought you were kidding when you said you saw a bear when you ran passed us.
I was pretty sure she wasn't kidding. Lucky it was Lina, who maintained her composure. Someone else might have panicked!
I don't know why, but when I saw it, I was first surprised, then I felt like I wanted to hug the bear, and then I forced myself into thinking that bears might be dangerous and I should not feel so confident around them. Also the bear didn't look aggressive :) Maybe in possibly dangerous situations like this when I feel completely powerless I feel like I have no other choice but face it fearlessly. Consider the worst but hope for the best. I would have probably panicked if I saw a bear from far away.
