24: something new.

24 May 2012

i rode on the bus today. the super hot bus, with lots of smelly people. disgusting, but true. how did i entertain myself? i listened to some awesome music with my new awesome, mocha-colored urbanears headphones. oh yeah.

in the evening, i went to a meeting out in the country at a real, typical, old swedish house on a farm. it was my first time in a genuine swedish farmhouse… something else that was new today. the house was  built in the late 1800s. it was decorated all country-fied. and i loved it. the meeting was the last board meeting, so the chairperson (an amazing, deeply spiritual, 70-something feminist who can do everything) invited the members of the board for dinner… and the meeting. it was salad, bread, and pie. pretty much everything homemade or home-grown. i could taste the earth. delish.

it was a long evening & meeting, but so good. i work with good people. i am freaking lucky & blessed. at 10:30 pm, we were finally ready to leave the farm & head home (only about 10-15 minutes). but, i couldn’t leave before shaping a sunset shot. living in a country that is not your home country, gives you opportunities to experience something new quite often. and that is something i love.

hope you held on & made it through thursday… the weekend is knocking on the door. peace to you all.

    Busus with school children on ’em, that’s what I despise the most…still, at least I am not the only one:
