Yet another holiday has passed and I am now back in my apartment in D.C. Time flew as always and I did not have the chance to see everyone that I wanted to see. Cara Carro thinks I am too busy when I am in Sweden, since I am actually on vacation and really should rest and reenergize. But the truth is that seeing my family and friends is the sole reason for going to Stockholm several times a year. Although I highly recommend Stockholm city and the archipelago for tourists, I am not there for the city scene or the beautiful environment. So not spending as much time as possible seeing people is a bit of a waste of vacation days. Days that I instead could have passed on a tropical island or at a World Heritage site off the beaten track in some remote area of the world. Or simply at a side walk café in Paris.
Anyway I saw many (including my cousins grandson, six week-old Teo – the latest addition to my family), ate a lot, took walks around wintry Stockholm, and spent time in my apartment, reading Austin and Harry Potter and watching the traditional screening of Bergman’s Fanny and Alexander on TV. Simply Christmas!
And I was way too lazy to post anything on the blog, so above comes a bit of a recap. Best wishes to all of you for the New Year!
