I saw Christmas knomes being sold in one store and Halloween outfits in the store next door.
I am still amazed at how many people seem to be so fit and slim. This is the complete opposite world to Alabama in so many ways. Thoughts like "you should have another brownie" crosses my mind when I see some people instead of "you should not be having more of that" when I saw people on the street in Birmingham. I constantly see people out jogging. I mean it is great but it still is as if am on planet of fitness here.
Using the restroom does cost money and is not for free when it comes to public restrooms. In the US you can find restrooms free of charge in every store and restaurant but not here.
You got to take your shopping cart back yourself or you won´t get your money back that you put into the cart in order to borrow one. There is no one in the parking lot that will take it back for you.
When you go shopping no one asks you if you did find everything you needed and wanted or if you would like some help finding something. The service and politeness that I have grown used to does not exist here.
Swedes are just as crazy about their coffee as Americans are about soda.
Swedes need all the light they can get and therefore prepared to live in an aquarium home. As the sun sets and lights are lit indoors you can easily see if people are home, what they are doing, what they are watching on tv, what they are having for dinner ect. In the US you never even know if people are home or if the home is even up for foreclosure because the blinds and heavy drapes/curtains are always drawn close. Americans need their privacy, Swedes are prepared to give it all up for the sake of some sunlight.
In Sweden you don´t see people dressed up on Sundays because people don´t dress up neither do they go to church on Sundays.
Whats up with the spinach? It is soaking wet often in the bags it is sold yet it has not been rinsed. I am not too crazy about this particular combination.
People have a lot of tatoos. It seems to be very common.
It is getting both dark and cold now. No question about it being fall.
