I can’t even make out this language…dots and dashes and shapes that all make up the language of this barren and intriguing country.

We landed  here after two successful flights on Ryan Air, and because of their strict weight allowances on baggage, we were wearing 5 & 6 layers of our heaviest clothes to make it under the 15 gram  per bag ( we were within half a pound on each).  We roasted on the planes, but needed it when we got off.  It is a gorgeous day, puffy clouds, and snow falling like dandruff but not sticking: it is 32 degrees. Having left Gails at 5am, we will take a quick walk around our Radisson Artrium Hotel, clean up, and call it a day.

On a side note, everyone here sounds like the swedish chef on the ol’ Muppet show.

We have arrived in Gothenburg, been picked up at the airport, and now are in our room on the 4th floor overlooking the lobby…very nice.  No extra charges for baggage on Ryanair, but 6 layers of clothing made for two very warm flights. More later.

PS.   Saw quite a few Volvos on the road coming in, can’t imagine why.
