I am in Stockholm for the weekend
Just arrived in Stockholm Sweden to spend the weekend. It is 10 pm.
Actually I am positively surprised. It looks much more fun and interesting than I could have imagined. The historic section is quite large and there are lots of people in the streets and the place has lots of character.
There are people in the streets until 2 AM and it is warm in summer. It has a large promenade and many walking sections along the waterfront. There is metro, though it is expensive at around 3 Euros a ride. Surprisingly, there are also poor homeless people in the street. Namely one guy in a wheelchair was singing Morrissey songs to an instrumental tape. The airport for the cheap airlines is Skavsta and its a little air strip, probably some military airport and it is 1 hour 30 minutes away!! The bus ride was more expensive than the flight!
At one of the bars I noticed this tiny room full of people. From far it looked like a sauna room. I finally asked and it turned out that it was "the smoking room". Apparently that is the only place people are allowed to smoke at.
