Meatballs, Volvos, Ikea, oh my!

Let me start off by saying that Sweden has, by far, the best looking women I've seen on my travels anywhere. Period. I wasn't sure at first if that was going to hold true, but looking around today, all I can say is wow. There is no need to do any sightseeing here in Stockholm, all you have to do is stand on a random corner and watch women go by and you'll be happy. Good stuff. The conventional 1 through 10 rating system just doesn't work here, because every woman is between a 6 and 10 (of course there are outliers), with the average around an 8. I'd encourage any single guys out there to move to Sweden immediately, find a lady (or two or three) and love life.

As for the guys, I haven't been checking them out so much (sorry, maybe Mia can fill you in) but I did notice a strange phenomenon - they seem to travel in threes. This wouldn't be strange in itself, but many of them have long, blond hair, so it looks like there are leagues of Hanson's roaming around the city. Very disconcerting.

Anyway, today we got up late and did a little tour of the city. Went to the oldest open-air museum in the world. I would describe it as a mix between colonial Williamsburg (I've never been but I'm guessing, and of course, it isn't colonial American, but rather 19th century Swedish) and a zoo. (Note to BrownBear if you're still reading this thing - we saw some brownbears at the zoo. They are called BrunBjorn, so I think now I will call you Bjorn. That amuses me, and probably upsets you, which, in turn, amuses me. Okay, sorry for the tangent.)

Then we walked around some more and saw more of the city. It's actually built upon one of the worlds largest archipelagos for all you geography buffs out there, and for the rest of you, it's a lot of islands. That's it for now. We're here in Stockholm for most of tomorrow and then off to Prague, the land of cheap, good beer. I'm looking forward to that.

I am amused that you are amused. But at least Bjorn has a clever story. Much better than "it was on a sitcom"
