Today, I had Swedish class first thing in the morning, as usual.  We are learning how to shop properly, how to ask how much things cost and all that.  It is quite interesting, and very practical, but it doesn’t do a lot for actually managing to talk to people in the street.  However, the grammar we learn with this will make the other things we want to say come more easily, I’m sure of it.

After lunch, my Arts in Sweden class went to the National Art Museum in Stockholm!  It was cool.  There was very little modern art, most of the things there were famous paintings from the 18th and 19th Century, and it was a thrill to see them in person!  However, I did not take a lot of photos, because taking pictures that won’t turn out very well of pictures seems pretty redundant.  However, I did take one in the main stairway.

Carl Larsson's "Coronation Procession of Gustaf Vasa"

Isn’t this one of the most impressive things you have ever seen?  That painting is about twenty feet high.

On the way back to the train station, we passed a couple of impressive buildings.

Tomorrow we have a regular day of classes, and if it is not raining, I plan to finaly visit the Linnaeum and see all of the flowers!

Until tomorrow,
