Also, let me say that the swedes are probably the cooliest nation of people. They have called it the United States of Sweden. Mostly because it's so open. They have to barriers or subjects that make them indignent. you pretty much cant make a cultural faux pas here. at least, not as an american. it's great. oh and its true, swedes all have blue eyes and 90 percent have blond hair. so go figure.
Every night they have some crazy gag at the nightly 'meetings' which are more like one-hour shows. last night at a 'wet t-shirt contest that was highly advertised around here, the curtain opened to a wide eyed audiance. it opend to reveil nothing but a line of, yes, wet t-shirts hanging on a line
the gags pretty much flow constantly around here, with funny quickly thrown together videos that are supposed to teach of the importance of recycling, or promoting bike rentals. but some are kung-fu style, while others are hidden camera exposes. Needless to say. iäm quite entertained around the clock.
the only difference is that the Swedes are much more comfortable with, shall we say, wearing the clothes that God gave 'em.
This was displayed last night at the dance, when at around 2 a.m. a gentleman got onstage above the ballroom and took his shirt off. No complaints. then a second man, soon there were about 10 swedes in various stages of undressing.
and soon, yes, several naked men were on stage, swaying to a song. and then swing dancing, lindy hopping to be exact. *ouch*
with the dancing going until 7 am theres hardly a need to adjust to the time difference but im manageing with a lot of vitimin c.
