The Swedish summer - a perfect illusion

The Church has since long lost its influence over peoples minds and souls
in Sweden. Even the social democratic party and the idea of the Swedish
model seem to be a bit off. But the grand illusion of the Swedish Summer is
in good health as always. But perhaps the time has come to make dreams
come true? Nobody will admit it but the news about The Global Heating
make people here beleive that there is a way to fix the Swedish summer
once and for all. High pressure and 25C all of June, July and August.

Well, we haven´t heard a lot about the Heating here lately, perhaps because
of the weather forecast for the coming weeks; 15-20C, cloudy, rainy and windy.

Have a look at the picture above showing three persons. My guess is that
they are Swedes touring their own country. It´s raining. The Tourist Information
could not help - most of the fun is outdoors. They don´t look like they want
to visit a museum or so. One of the men is swearing over his camera,
the other seems to be dreaming of foreign places, like The Caribbean or
whatever. The woman is trying to protect herself from the cold, Arctic rain.
Poor souls.

was exhibiting his work in a public toilet

If i'm allowed to tell mine: it's raining here in Milan too!

But water pouring down is nearly 30 degrees warm ... my country has become a tropical one, like India or the Caribbean ... let's take it from the right side: I won't have to wet my pottery on the balcony this evening.
