aspects of Stockholm - part I

This was the only Swedish resident we met at Stockholm's old town centre Friday evening (midsummer!!!). All the other inhabitants of Stockholm left their hometown to spend the midsummer weekend somewhere at the waterside (--> Stockholm archipelago) or in the countyside.
Our taxidriver from the Arlanda airport to Gamla stan (Stockholm's old town) was an Italian lady called Simona (--> Friday was her first day as a taxi driver and we were her first customers! She did a great job! If you want to drive with her in future in Stockholm's periphery - I still have the number of her mobile phone... ;-)). Most of the restaurants were closed, exept of the coffehouses run by immigrants. So the first Swedish meal (svenske kjøttbullar - Swedish meatballs) we had at an Indian cafe!

Gamla stan (Stockholm's historic district) short after sunset at 22:07 Central European Summer Time.

Stockholm's watertaxis at the end of the work day.

svenske kjøttbullar - Swedish meatballs (?) --> Indian meatballs (!) we had at an Indian cafe.
