I got to sit in a press conference with Fredrik Reinfeldt.
He was very nice and it was cool except for the fact there was a thousand cameras around snapping pix constantly and the tv cameras made me nervous. However I spoke swedish, bad swedish i'm sure, on national tv. At least I tried.
When he first started comming into the building, we could see him walking through the courtyard with his entourage of bodyguards and reporters just surrounding him. Was crazy but so cool. Then within seconds he was in the room, shook everyones hand. Then we all sat and the cameras started to go click crazy. The meeting started and we got to talk about what we thought of the 'instegsjobb' which is what I have...I won't bother to explain.
I got to talk twice which was crazy because when it's your turn, everyone shuts up. I didn't really get to say what I wanted to say because all the cameras made me nervous and all eyes on me freaked me out, so therefor my swedish was kept short. My friend Tatiana happens to also have an instegsjobb and she was there too. Was great to have an experience with my friend like that. I am sure on Sunday when we meet for coffee that we will have plenty to talk about.
Me and Fredrik Reinfeldt (Swedish Prime Minister)
Oh, if you want to see the rest of the pictures I took...CLICK HERE
There was only one other foreigner besides me and her who were there. But there were other job owners who were invited to the meeting to see what they think of instegsjobb. Maybe a total of 15 people?? who got to be on tv etc...there were maybe 5 or 6 others who sat in the background...and then of course reporters like crazy. So now I wait for the news to come on and we are going to record it. I got a little video of him talking, but I don't think there is a point of me posting it when it's all in swedish anyways.
Of course I don't have any pictures of during the meeting because it's not allowed, However I will see what I can get from the newspapers tomorrow.
Anyways, time to eat!
And the latest......... I have the video news report..i'm at the end,twice..it's not long really, but it's so cool! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKw963r9EjA
