Hello from lovely Stockholm again.

Hello from lovely Stockholm again. Today I walked around a lot and was busy. I started this morning off with a visit to the Telecommunications Museum. This museum is dedicated just to the mobile phone and is sponsored by Ericsson. For those that know me well this place was totally up my ally. From there, I took the bus back in to town and walked over to Gamla Stan where the palace is and the old city. Pretty neat stuff. Then just across the bridge back to the mainland is the city hall. This is where the Nobel Prize is awarded every year. Like last time we were here, I missed teh inside tower but got a good walk on the outside. From there it was up and around Drottninggatan and some of the other shopping areas. On the way back up to Odenplan where my hotel is, I stoped at the Nordic Sea hotel and checked out teh famous Ice Bar. This bar is completely made of ice. The tables, cups and bar are all made of teh same ice as the Ice Hotel in the north. You pay a small fee to go in and are outfited with a heavy coat and special drinking gloves before you enter. Once you enter, your fee includes 1 free drink as long as it includes Absolute since they sponsor this thing and are a Swedish company. For those that want to see more of this unique place, it is featured in the new James Bond movie, Die Another Day. Well it’s 16:40 and most things closed today around 16:00. Relaxtonight and then get up tommorow to check out of the hotel and get some last minute gifts that I’ve been looking at. Flight back to London is at 18:00 and I will be back in London at 19:40 so I can meet up with mom and dad. Well that’s the update for today.
Stockholm, Sweden
