roll 3: sweden

More film from my vacation for you! This roll was of everyday life with Henrik and his grandmother during our 3 week stay in Sweden.

Some explanations: 

In Sweden, alcohol is regulated by the government, so it's sold in separate shops! (How bizarre, right?) Also, most of these photos were taken within Henrik's grandmother's glass house. Because Sweden is cold, but generally gets a lot of sunlight, she had a glass house built in her backyard. It's where she spends a lot of her day, reading or just sitting, and we had our meals there. The glass really did keep heat in, and because the temperature was usually quite mild (there were a few exceptions, and then the glass house was sweltering), the effect was pleasant.
On another note, happy Saturday all! Don't forget, only a few hours left in my giveaway! :)
