Natt över land och stan, sovande hus...

Greetings from Stockholm!

Yes, once again it's nearly New Year, and it's becoming a tradition for me to head north. I'm here in Stockholm until Wednesday of next week, and already I can feel myself relaxing into my none-too-strenuous Swedish routine of getting up late, doing a little light shopping and then meeting friends for a 'fika' (a coffee and a chat) or a drink.

Needless to say it's very, very dark in Stockholm at this time of the year. I'm writing this in my hotel room at 1515, and it's already an advanced twilight outside. The sky will soon be inky blue, and then quite black.

Last night flying into Bromma airport was truly spectacular. The night was completely still and clear, and as we flew over Stockholm (including right over the Globe arena), you could see everything magically lit up - even the lights in people's windows as we approached the runway. It was truly a heart-in-throat kind of moment.

But then, as you know, I need no further convincing about this place. I love Stockholm, and it seems to love me back.
