The jungle at Skansen
In order to get Marit put into her Dutch passport Marjolein had to present herself together with Marit at the Dutch Embassy in Stockholm. Together with a meeting I was supposed to have with a couple of colleagues, we used this as an excuse for a long weekend in the capital. As you can see from the photo, the spring had come early to Stockholm, but Marjolein appears to be oblivious... Our hotel was out at Skärholmen, which necessitated two 20-minute trips on the underground every day - next time we'll look for a good deal in the city centre! Despite all the entertaining things we laid on, Saskia also decided to have at least one major tantrum a day, which made the whole thing stressful, but in the end it was worth it.
On the Friday we looked mostly around shops. My meeting was supposed to be on Saturday morning but one of my colleagues suddenly got influenza so I ended up meeting them on Friday evening, before his symptoms got too bad.
