The Saturday was quite chilled (literally!) but I had good weather, well, as good weather as Stockholm in November allows, so I had a little walk about taking all these lovely winter shots of the city =). You cannot believe how much snow has fallen! It's ridiculous, in some places where it hasn't been cleared, the snow goes half way to my shin! Oh but it's so fluffy and soft mmmm...Also on the plus side, since it's so cold, the horrible slush that all my Swedish friends have been warning me about has been avoided! w00t! That doesn't make riding around Stockholm any less harrowing. The problem is not knowing whether than pile of snow in front of you is going to melt away or land you face first into the ground...or worse, steer you into the traffic =S. But yes, Saturday, photos, cold but nice =D.
That evening I went ice skating for the first time in my life! What a horribly wonderful experience =P I fell over heaps, as expected but it didn't hurt as much as I thought it would, I guess having 5 layers on helps too haha
Sunday was a very lazy day, apart from the aches and pains from ice skating, the sun had also returned to its usual place behind the clouds =( It can get quite depressing without any light for 17 hours of the day, and since I get up quite late, it's even less for me haha. Not that I'm depressed, but you just don't feel like doing anything...I'm soooo lazy these days. XD Anywho, Sunday night I went out to see Animal Kingdom with the Aussie gang (well, Tom, Yee-Ling, Svet and Dave + curious others wanting to check out Australian films). Was an intense movie to say the least, not about Melbourne mobsters as I thought but I enjoyed it...I think =P. The short movie "Muscles" was also played beforehand, I don't think I did enough media to understand it but maybe some of you guys know it haha. Oh, the Swedish do a funny thing where someone comes out and talks about the movie beforehand as well, weird but that could also be because I don't understand what they're saying XD.
