ringing in 2011 on Observatorielunden with snow, champagne, and several hundred heavily intoxicated people
With that said, gott nytt år! That's happy new year! for you non-Swedish speakers. I made it back to Stockholm with only a day to spare before Dec 31, having been delayed by the 2 feet of snow that hit Newark just hours before my travel itinerary had me scheduled for a layover there. SO thankful not to have spent day(s) in an airport, though, as I know thousands of other people had to do.
And so we rang in the new year with our dear friends starting with the Swedish Christmas drink, glögg, then a delicious 3-course meal
bruchetta&asparagus,oxfile,whitechocolatemoussew/raspberrysauceand then much drinking and merriment as a blizzard raged and we counted down the hours-minutes-seconds until we could say
and what a great year it's been so far
