Alcohol is ridiculously expensive, or at least the varieties with over 3.5% alcohol (which is controlled by the government-owned monopoly).
In reality, all of the highlights in Sweden are related to its metro system, or at least that’s what I got out of my visit.
First, everything down there is huge:
The entire system is actually an art installation; 4 (four!) of its stations made the list of 15 Most Beautiful Metro Stations. I won’t include all the pictures here but trust that I went to all of them.
Sweden is of course also home of IKEA.
Finally, I guess there’s a downtown too.
I really wanted this one to be the cutest love story I’ve seen: a guy is walking his black lab, but it tugs him across the street to the waitress that’s kneeling to the left of the puppy. The dog is out of its mind excited and the waitress is really happy to see this bundle of fur interrupt her normal duties.
