I'm staying at the Odyssey's "Vandrarhem Stf Backpackers Inn" - a youth hostel with large, 14-bedded rooms. The hostel converts the local Gardesskolan School (during summer recess) for revenue bookings. Even with 14 in a room, I slept like a brick! - with the help of 'natural' was earplugs, and sheer exhaustion from riding. Well rested, this afternoon I took a guided tour of "Sveriges Riksdag" - the Swedish parliament building, and got an introduction to democracy here. Very classy, elegant, understated; the place reminded me of ... Nordstroms! -AC
