A quick trip out to the countryside

So we've had a busy week. I'm all set at school now. Gotten to meet a whole bunch of interesting people from around the globe while attending a whirlwind of lectures and meetings. Loving it. And tomorrow we dive into the actual classes "for real".

In the mean time, we were able to take a break off to the archipelago outside of Stockholm. Anne came too, but unfortunately the first half of the weekend was a bit rainy. Once that cleared up, it was quite lovely. The weather and look of the landscape was strongly reminiscent of Maine.

Sweden has beautiful, clear/clean water. It's a great place to be.

My schedule's pretty full. Might have my head down in a book most of the time through September. Then things get fun with the move into the new place. Oh yeah. Remember our boxes that we're having shipped to Stockholm? Some how they're being shipped to Goteborg which is on the other side of the country. We'll work it out so that it actually shows up here, but it just goes to show you that a heart attack can always be around a corner. Even when you thought you had a contract that said Stockholm. Which we do. Nevertheless, I'm sure it will work out fine, once the time change and the business cycle let the Powers That Be communicate.

In the long run, not a big deal? Yes, but right now it's our burr in the shoe.

Hope your day's smoother.

  1. Sounds like fun! GLad school is fun so far and that you got to see some of the countrys5de.

    The old waiting for the household goods thing can be a trial! Hopefully they'll ship your stuff to Stockholm in time to move into your permanent place.
