Ja, det är en vacker dag. Here is a photograph of another beautiful day (from mid-March 2009), when my partner and I were walking near the royal palace in Stockholm.
I truly miss the views of the Swedish countryside during winter. Even though winter has not officially begun here, I’m longing for snow. One of the most beautiful scenes that I saw in Sweden was from a train, looking out on a gently sloping, treeless field covered in half a meter of snow, with red buildings appearing as dots on a distant hill. If only I could have packed the countryside’s serenity in my suitcase… Boston could use a more intense winter (and more rural areas)!
