Goodbye Sweden

Today’s course went a lot more smoothly.  The problems of yesterday were foreseen and avoided.  At the end of the day I was invited out to Joe’s bar.

Rush back to the hotel, phone the Missus (Yes, I’m still alive), iron my jacket, back the 3 km to the office, just in time to intercept Andreas en route to the bar.  Really nice evening with a group of Norwegian, Finnish and Danish Dell guys.  Drank a little too much on an empty stomach, but still sober enough to type this up on the return to the hotel.

Sweden, at least this tiny bit of it, reminds me of Milton Keynes, but with more character.  Lots of footpaths and underpasses, it has a planned feel to it.  Most of the houses are bungalows with loft conversions (though the loft was probably built that way to start with).  The steep roofs and single storey remind me of chalets.  Both days here have been gloriously sunny, but it was freezing cold on the way back this evening.

I can now say ‘good morning’ and ‘hello’ in Swedish, and the Dell guys can now call someone a ‘git’.  My work here is complete.
