Italian-Swedish dinner

Here I am,

cooking pappardelle al ragù with one of my classes.
I have to hand it to them, they cooked very well too!

Kungsträdgården in the summer

Some months ago I showed the Kungsträdgården area, which is one of the most central squares in Stockholm, during Christmas time

Now we can see the same area in a completely different period, where the light lasts 19 hours a day instead of 5, and the people can dress in a very light way

The difference is pretty clear!

In Italy when the students end secondary school (high school) there's no official celebration whatsoever, you say goodbye to your classmates, you say fuck off to you ex professors, turn your back and leave that school for ever.
In Sweden when these 19 year old students graduate, they rent a van, they sit on it, play music, drink booze, dance and have a driver that tour them all over the centre.
Here they are, and the second truck shows a very interesting slogan "hellre bonde och arbetande än ekonom och arbetslös" which means "rather farmer and worker than economist and unemployed"
