The first wave of summer company from the United States arrived this morning. One of my oldest and dearest friends is visiting for the first time since 2003, and it's fanstastic to have her sitting in the livingroom of The Penthouse-Nordic
She and her travelling companion were supposed to arrive yesterday afternoon, but missed their flight out of Chicago after getting caught in major traffic jam enroute to O'Hare.
The delay means they are battling jet-lag today rather than yesterday, and we have a full evening of Swedish/European culture planned…starting with Sweden's semi-final hockey match in the 2007 World Cup tournament, to be followed by the annual Eurovision Song Contest.
On second thought, maybe the music will sound better if they're jet-lagging?
