One of the fun things about living over here in Sweden is happening across other Americans who are visiting. A friend and I went over to Marstrand island last weekend with our chickadees for a girl’s day out, and ran into this lovely family while we were having a traditional Swedish lunch of fläsk och potatis – which is basically pork cut thinly so it resembles a really thick bacon, and a side of boiled potatoes with seasoning. Yummy!
I’m embarrassed now to say I don’t remember their names, but they were from Connecticut and hopefully they will check the blog to see their lovely family photo with the island’s 350 year old fortress in the background. Update: Lucky for me they were checking in so I’m now happy to introduce the Portugal family (Edwin on the right is following Blue Velvet Chair – Hi Edwin!).
