      Had been a bit worried about the car on my way from Norway, though once I had reached Sweden and there were a few hundred miles under the belt, realised that Rune probably wasn't the devil and he had fixed it up well enough. Decided to not worry about it and just enjoy myself. Went to Stockholm on the monday night after the weekend and picked up Phil and Freya from the airport ...

      A nice bus ride with a very jolly Norwegian driver to Sweden looked a lot like driving in northern Minnesota. Flat rocky lakeshores with pines and birches and cabins.

Back to camp, where everyone was still up and about at 11.30 and very noisy through the night, being still daylight! The Midsommarstang had been hoisted here too, in our absence.

      We woke to fantastic reflections on the absolutely calm lake. Drove up the road to the Nusnas factory again, to watch the production of the Dala horses. Originally carved from scrap wood in the lumberjack camps in the winter, for the children back home, in 18th century First references of wooden horses for sale made in 1624, nearly 400 years ago.
