Meeting a Swedish alien

I decided to "celebrate" Kristihimmelsfärd after all. No one was sending any e-mails from Sweden anyway. I fled the heat and headed to a cool shopping mall on Thursday to get some stuff for my upcoming trip to Sweden. 

The fellow Swedish Alien Paul was in the neighborhood and we met in a empty food court at the mall for a "fika". Not the optimal “fik” – but at least they had coffee. 

It’s always interesting to compare notes with other Swedish aliens – especially those who like me work for a Swedish company and juggle Swedish holidays, phone conferences on strange hours and a usual lack of understanding on how far away California really is...
