Fellow Swedes, let me start by apologizing. I know that summer hasn't exactly kicked in back home the way one might expect, and I'm sorry that this could be interpreted as 'rubbing it in'. Because, you know, this is sort of what Seattle has been like for weeks upon weeks now:
I took the bike for a ride up to Discovery Park on my way home from work yesterday, sweat pouring from my body in the afternoon heat. The stunning views were well worth getting my clothes soaked, however. The Sound, the sail boats, Mount Rainier—all of it. So damn beautiful.
I wonder if I've ever experienced a month of June like this before—or if I ever will again.
