Day 1: Sarah gets right into Swedish life with a herring burger! It's not for everyone but if you like to really get get down and dirty with native foods when traveling then... Sarah did! And, she was glad she did!
Day 2: Back for more herring burgers. Yes, they are really that good. I'm not sure what is but you put salty fried fish together with lots of red onions, cucumbers and a light but flavorful white mystery sauce and it becomes addictive.
Swedish Summer Nights: it is 9:25PM and the sky is still light. The days really are longer when the sun goes up at 3:30AM and goes down after 10PM. Good thing is there is more time for ice cream.
Tourists are always amazed at Swedish Summer nights. Sarah and I walked up to the top of Södermalm and watched the sun set with about 2 dozen other tourists whom all had camera in hand.
Good with Kids: before you have kids you have lot's of friends that are awesome when it comes to having a good time, great when it comes to talking about politics or art, fabulous companions when it comes to road tripping it across America. Some friends are really great until you have kids and then they are like... "give me a call when you find a babysitter". Not Sarah... she is great in all those situations plus has the most amazing energy with kids. I was blown away! The kids really appreciate that they could use her cell phone to look at pictures and after spending a fabulous Sunday together Tilda got really sad when she heard Sarah was leaving the next day.
Flaten Lake: Just before Sarah was about to pack we took a long walk behind our apartment. It was 9PM and the light was perfect... the heat of the day had settled down and we just tried to take in what a frickin' amazing few days we had just had!
