Swedish Time Capsule

Today in Swedish class, we made our own Swedish time capsules - "tidkista" in Swedish. We were supposed to choose items which represent typical Sweden today. Here were my contributions:

          Song> Robyn's Dancing on My Own, and not just because Nik's cousin is/was her drummer; it's a good song, and I think it represents the importance of personal independence for many Swedes
          Technical appliance> i phone, no question - everyone seems to have one, except me that is
          Smell> maybe because I got a whiff on my way to class, but I'd say the smell of hotdogs; sounds weird, I know, but hotdog stands are everywhere in Stockholm - and tasty too! 
          Article of clothing> Converse sneakers, the brighter the better
          Meal> tacos. yep, Sweden loves tacos; go to the smallest grocery store in the country - I guarantee they've got a whole aisle devoted to tortillas, salsas, guacamole, seasoning - if it goes on a taco, it'll be there

What would you put in a time capsule?
