Am back in Stockholm since Friday night. Yes, I actually did catch my flight in Riga – it was over three hours delayed. It is nice to be here. It’s been snowing for days and Stockholm is beautiful. With the past decades’ increasing temperatures, this will be the first time in over 15 years that we will have a white Christmas. And it seems to have contributed to everyone’s Christmas spirit. My neighborhood is full with people that are shopping gifts and christmas trees, and meeting up with friends in cafes, and everyone seem to be in a good mood. I am too. I love Chrsitmas!
