So long, daylight

Heading to Sweden in the morning with the parents. Lots of work to do, but it'll be fun, too - or at least an instant education in Swedish bureaucracy. But it's always cool to be there this time of year. No real daylight, just a few hours of slightly diminished gloom, then it's night again. Candles everywhere. Cozy cellar bars, hot wine, saffron bread. (Reindeer in tubes!!! What a country.) For the last week of the trip we'll be up in Harnösand, several hours north of Stockholm on the coast, where it's REALLY wintery. (That's where my future cabin/hideout is.) I'll send dispatches as often as the excitement level merits. :>
