The Embassy chef Frida Johansson created a fantastic dinner from locally sourced ingredients on the theme of “Sweden -the Edible Country.” Thank you to the Nordic Museum, the Swedish Club, Hotel Andra, The Gates Foundation, Amazon and Starbucks for hosting us and to all our visitors for coming! ...

good for you that you had all these people visiting. I hope you let them know the problems Swedes now have renewing our passports since the "bus" broke down and we must pay dearly to fly to Washington DC instead of having it renewed in Seattle or other cities in the US:-(

Awesome to see Petra Hilleberg in my home town of Olympia. Thanks for making the best tents in world!

Kathi Ploeger and I appreciate the effort and enthusiasm of the folks who attended our Hallingspringar workshop yesterday. It was exciting to see you becoming more skilled and comfortable with one of our favorite dances. Also, much appreciation to Martha Levenson, for her organization and excellent fiddling, and to Peter Michaelsen for sharing the fiddling responsibility. Jerry & Judy, thank you for sharing your home, once again.
