so, stockholm. this was my first time (ever) visiting the city and i was totally smitten by it. the weather was gorgeous, the people really friendly, and the townscape beautiful with the nature very close to the center. i can't wait to go back and explore more, not too distant in the future.
i was headed for somewhere else when i stumbled upon another of the fabulous Fabrique bakery (actually, i had found yet another too - wasn't aware they had more than one location in town!). and just decided to stop here for some more bread and a cup of cappuccino..
some of the things i picked up at the sunday flea market at Hötorget. // when i was little, one of my favorite TV programs was an anime adaptation of the novel The Wonderful Adventures of Nils (ニルスのふしぎな旅 in Japanese; original title in Swedish: Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige) by the Swedish author Selma Lagerlöf. i remember being fascinated by how the young boy, shrunken by magic, travels on the back of a goose, and dreaming of one day seeing Lapland myself. years past and i almost forgot about it, and imagine my surprise and delight as i found Nils on the back of Morten the goose illustrated on the Swedish 20 krona banknote..
started off the day early (for me anyway - and it was the day they moved the clock one hour forward too!) to check out a small sunday flea market, just as the market was slowly getting ready for the day..
