Snaps in Sweden

After having had fresh lefsa in Norway, we took off to Sweden. After a day of work for Brian and a day of rest for Lorie (actually mostly Internet time for Lorie as she hunted down other airplane tickets for another trip), we spent Tuesday night walking around the old part of Stockholm.

We picked a place for dinner that looked like it had some traditional Swedish meals and good drinks. The owner makes his own snaps (basically what American’s call schnapps) and tonight it was raspberry and bitter (licorish). We really liked the raspberry snaps, and the barley wine was good too. So were the salmon, potatoes, bread, and chocolate truffle.

   

The lefsa on the left is fresh from a grocery store in Norway (Lorie had never experienced fresh lefsa before – she liked it) and on the right is a street in the old part of Stockholm.

By the way, Oslo and Stockholm are both like Seattle and London this time of year: rain 

There are new photos of our trip in the Scandinavia photo album.
