Errol had a philosophy commitment in Uppsala today. It’s a university town outside of Stockholm. We went back and forth on whether the kids and I should go. We landed on yes, and it was the right decision.
We had a low-key day in a beautiful place. We started at Pelle Svanslöparken. It’s an amazing playground based off some Swedish stories. Errol is on the hunt for English translations.
Next, we got lunch at a grocery. Thom found some Swedish meatballs in the prepared foods section, and they were pretty delicious.
We picnicked in the public library courtyard and later went inside and enjoyed their chessboard and large selection of English books.
We reunited with Errol, and all of us visited the impressive cathedral. Sehr schön.
On the walk back to the train station, I bought some strawberries from a street stand. They were sold in unwrapped containers without lids. I told Errol that I wasn’t sure how I’d get them safely transported back to our hotel. He said he was pretty sure that wouldn’t be an issue. He was right.
