I woke up pretty early this morning and went for a wander. It was just after 6am and I was hassled by one guy for some beer money. He needed a beer to getover his hangover, he said. At least he was honest. Back home, people would say they needed it for a train fare or something similar. He could go thirsty as far as I was concerned, though I did see him on my return outside Central Station, with a can in his hand.
I was introduced to “the old city” last night, sharing dinner with Par Brandt from Auto Motor and Sport magazine. Par gave me a quick tour around, explaining some of the history of Stockholm as we went. We also had a great chat about cars in general, Saab more specifically, and the general fact that Par’s got one of the best jobs in the world.
This morning I shot some video of the places we visited and I’ll look to edit that and put it together shortly. It really is a beautiful place.
Until then, here’s what I came across with 2 minutes of battery left on the video camera. It’s very short, but the truth doesn’t have to be long-winded, does it?
I’m off to Trollhattan this afternoon. There’s a chance that I may have a Mac there to edit stuff on, which will make life a bucketload easier as this Windows sofware is a pain in the backside.
See you from Trollhattan – soon!!
