Woke up decently early to go out to a welcome Daniel/farewell roommate lunch with the core staff. My roommate didn't show up, so it turned out to be more of just a staff lunch. We went to a place called citykonditori, a dining hall on the third floor at what used to be a dance hall. Apparently Thursdays are pea soup days in Sweden. I tried laxpudding (salmon in potato layers), and couldn't finish half of it. I'm sorry but I really don't like potato dishes here. They are ...

... great that Skansen is!)
We began in the tradesmen's village. The kids got to meet and watch the potter, the glassblower, the engraver, the silversmith, and the keeper of the general store working on various stages of their crafts. They *really* loved the potter, who was throwing bowls on the wheel. They also enjoyed playing with some historical toys found in various buildings throughout the park.
