Sightseeing

After passing out from lack of sleep, I got up around 10 pm....took a quick shower, brushed my teeth, threw on some jeans, a hoodie and sneakers then me and my brother went out for a few hours of late night sightseeing in Stockholm.
We did a loop from Söder, through Gamla Stan (Old Town) down to City and Östermalm.
It was like I was never gone. This is me looking at the view of beautiful Stockholm from Gondolen.





Dalahästar. These are traditional statuettes carved out of wood then painted, usually red but they come in different colors. Many people that visit Sweden as tourists will end up bringing one home, most of the time not as large as the ones in the pic.



Mårten Trotzigs Gränd. This is the narrowest street in Stockholm, you can find it in Gamla Stan. Old Town.





More from Gamla Stan. I bought a latte and it was gross but I sipped on it while walking. Tomorrow I'm going to have a proper kaffe latte and some prinsesstårta (my fave cake).





I found a payphone. I needed a pic wit it. Of course. It's good that my brother is a patient and willing photographer.



My brother Robert.



Sergels Torg aka Plattan.



I'm so ready for sleep now, have to catch up on it. Godnatt!


Sweden



Surprise! I'm in Sweden! I arrived a few hours ago and now I'm at my brothers apartment charging my phone and deciding on what I'm going to do today....it's 3 pm here and today happens to be the National Day of Sweden. Lots of stuff going on in Stockholm tonight! Sunshine and 20 degrees C out. I can't wait to meet up with my family, all my friends, have latte (fika) and eat yummy food! More from Sweden later.....
