Hallå vänner!

Before my dear friend Anna visited Stockholm, she honored Gothenburg with her presence. Here goes the awesome postcard she did send me from there.
Gothenburg, or Göteborg, as the swedish call it, is after Stockholm the second biggest city in Sweden.
Anna tells me, the prejudice that there are a million McDonalds in Gothenburg is true! Apparently there is a McDonald behind every corner xD.
But to rescue Gothenburgs reputation: There seems to be one Starbucks only!

Hallå vänner!

I got this card from my dear friend Anna from her trip to Sweden! Tack Tack Tack Anna! I love the cards you did send to me!

So on this card you see the Venice of the North, the capital of Sweden: Stockholm. Anna writes me that Stockholm is a nice city with a lot of tiny alleys which are sometimes so narrow, that she only could pass them sideways. Funny picture in my mind ^^
