It feels funny working whilst my British colleagues have a Bank Holiday Monday.
I have had a great weekend.
I have taken some photos from my trip to Vaxholm and will add them later this week. Vaxholm is in the Swedish archipelago and is called a city despite the fact that it only has 4887 inhabitants. In Sweden city status is usuall dependent on having 10,000+ population. It turns out I had been here previously in 1993/4 as part of delegation with the Young Liberals but being 18 I remember very little of it.
Hammarby was fun, they were all over Goteborg and should have murdered them. They were like a different team from the one I saw a few weeks ago, it finished 0-0 but it the game was more exciting than the scoreline suggests.
I quite liked Goteborgs’ crest, its strikes me as being very Scottish but then it seems a lot of Scots actually went to live in Goteborg (Gothenberg.) Some of the songs were amusing, of course a lot of songs about fishermen and about paying taxes. Apparently some of the directors of the club were caught up in tax scandals and of course you can rely on the wit of football fans to make a song up about that.
The weather has been glorious here, Stockholm is like another city right now compared to how it looked in January.
