8 days later

8 days after leaving, I have returned to California. It's a loooong trip. It just takes for ever. I wonder how many times I've done this California - Chicago - Sweden trip. 30? 40? I think I could find my way around O'Hare blind folded by now.

Only two interesting things happened during the trip.

The first was watching the The Sex and the City movie on the in-flight entertainment system. I had seen the movie the day before in Stockholm - but the uncensored version. The version shown on the flight was... well, very censored... No naked bodies (and for those of you who have seen the SATC movie knows that that is sort of a big part of the movie...).

The second was sitting next to a Swedish person on my second flight, from Chicago to California, - and that has never, ever happened before. Turns out he and his (American) fiancee had been on the same SAS flight from Stockholm to Chicago. We talked almost the whole flight about our experiences when returning back to Sweden, vs living in California and all the topics that goes around in a Swedish alien's head. Made the flight go slightly faster.

Välkommen tillbaka igen. Idag är det nästan dags att öppna strumplådan igen.:) Nästa gång får du ta med en större resväska.

Keep shoes away from side of escalators. Notera, inte benen eller kroppen utan skorna. ;)

Nika - tackar!

Veronika - ja... galet faktiskt. Ja - nästan jeansväder! Det var riktigt trevligt att ha kläder på sig förra veckan.

Anna - japp! Man får tydligen hålla i "räcket"... ;-) Din skylt var roligare - men den här är ju rätt intressant också...

Cissi - japp - måste följa reglerna så man inte blir stämd. ;-) Oj oj - en utmärkelse - det måste jag titta på!
