Naked Spring

Today it feels like spring in Stockholm. Despite a layer of crisp snow, the sun is blazing upon us, warm enough to make me sneeze. Of course, it is just one of many “fake springs”, which come and go right into May.

Some signs of spring in Stockholm (or vårtecken, as the locals say):

– People sitting outsides cafes and restaurants, wrapped up in blankets and shivering

– Dog-shit emerging slowly from the melting snow

– Smokers standing in flocks outside bars, doing their mating dance

– Great lumps of ice falling from buildings and bashing people on the head

– Girls wearing shorter and tighter clothes (which I, being not single, do not actually notice…)

– An occasional smile from a bus driver

– And finally, Dancing Naked Guy


Just 4 more months to summer…
