I was going to school this morning, minding my own business, reading the newspaper, or at least trying to with my basic swedish skills. I happened to look up when the spårvagn stopped at gamlestan torget, and I took notice that everything was dead quiet and every single person surrounding me in the front car of the spårvagn was reading a newspaper, including me.
I got turned off by this and set my paper down. Here in sweden everyone does the same thing, wears the same thing etc etc. Of course I can't complain too much because I too follow the trendy clothes etc etc, and I try to be as swedish as my american side will let me....However this moment just happened to bother me and I couldn't do it anymore.
I hope everytime I notice something here, that it doesn't make me cynical.
