Hello from Gothenburg, Sweden

Attention, attention, I think Professor Cat has just made a new anthropological discovery -- the Swedes hibernate. What else could be the reason that the streets in Gothenburg are virtually deserted? See... nary a human in sight! But then, on the very same street, a spinning class is full of spinners! Hmm, weird.

Oh, here is my cute little hotel room. At first I thought I had stepped into an IKEA showroom!

Since the city is pretty much dead on a Sunday night, I went to a wine bar near the hotel and had some food before I went to bed. The Caesar salad is one of the best I've had. The shrimp here is surprisingly flavorful. The ones we have in the States tend to be bland, here, the shrimp have a taste to them, slightly salty, just flavorful.

Hej Cat Advocat!
Hur är det?
Jag kommer från Tyskatown, Maryland.
Talar du svenska?

Du gamla, du fria, du fjällhöga Nord,
Du tysta, du glädjerika sköna!
Jag hälsar dig, vänaste land uppå jord,
Din sol, din himmel, dina ängder gröna.
Din sol, din himmel, dina ängder gröna.

Du tronar på minnen från fornstora da'r,
då ärat ditt namn flög över jorden.
Jag vet att du är och du blir, vad du var.
Ja, jag vill leva, jag vill dö i Norden.
Ja, jag vill leva, jag vill dö i Norden.

Hej då

Swedish meatballs! You MUST get Swedish meatballs with lingonberry jam. Yum. And funny little crispy Swedish wafer-like cookies.

Or maybe you can visit IKEA headquarters. That would be a hilarious photo.

Dkhadk jar, dkarjklarl, blahblah... how do you know Swedish? That's amazing!

Pei, no need to visit IKEA headquarters, it seems the entire Sweden is one extended IKEA showroom. The furnishings here are all IKEA everywhere!
