Tjena! I’ve realized this morning I last blogged about Sweden in March so let me amend that right away on Sweden’s National Day. The Swedes aren’t so big on the national day and there isn’t much going on in town, except for everything being closed. We have, however, had about two weeks of literally the best possible weather so I have no doubt everyone will be sprawled out on laws and rocks across the city just hanging out.
Yes, my friends, the “euphoric Swedish summer” has arrived in Gothenburg and it is indeed euphoric. Temperatures hanging around 25*C/75*F, lots of sun, 4am to 11pm daylight. We suffer through the long, dark winter but when Spring arrives, it really arrives. I was so worried it would just never be warm, but this year it seems we are going to have some nice weather. There are plenty of cold-weather photos in this update because we start in April.
