Graham found a great KLM flight deal to Europe with a free multi-day layover in Amsterdam, so we went to visit
Sweden! I did a little work at CBF and gave a seminar, but mostly it was a social visit catching up with our Sweden-buddies. We visited Divya and Shyam in Uppsala, and got to visit with Divya’s parents and their new baby, Sahana. We stayed with Hasse and Elja for some great meals and tour of sandviken, then visisted Jennie and Richard and their little girl. We also went to Julinvigning to see the fireworks and then visit Camilla’s new place for glogg afterwords. ┬áIt was a bit short as visits go, but so fun!

We went for a walk at Hogbo. Warm whether and no snow fall is not excuse for not skiing!
