| 05.18.2004 | it's sweden, baby, yeah!

So, I'm in Sweden! You read that right. 4200 miles from home in sunny SoCal. I'm here on business working on a project with our fine friends from <client name>. Who is <client name>? you are wondering? I'll tell you in approx 6 more months when the game ships!

I had a great flight over, though it was spectacularly long. Almost 18 hours of travel time - 2 PM PDT on Sunday, arriving at 3 PM Mon Gothenburg time. We had a great stroke of luck and were upgraded to first class (business class on SAS) for the long flight across the ocean in an Airbus 330-300. I never want to travel standard/economy again!

I had only a few hours to run to <client name> and take a tour of the game with the associate producer and then eat a bite before I collapsed from exhaustion.

I woke up bright and early this morning, though, and took a few good pictures of the Gothenburg before heading to work. I arrived back at the hotel (Radison SAS Park Ave) tonight just in time to snap a few pictures of the gorgeous sunset.

Check 'em out below. I have ~ 100 more but sleep beckons! Look for more later this week and a pile when I return to the States.

I'm disappointed...isn't ever Swed supposed to own a Volvo?! I think I only saw one in your pictures. Of course, I could be confusing things...this is me we are talking about!

I would guess at least 50% of the cars I see on the road are Volvo's. There's even a Volvo (the new S40) in the hotel lobby. Taxi's seem to be a mix of Volvo station wagons and nice Mercedes.

Apparently not everyone owns a car, and certainly not one per family member link in the states. Here in the city they seem to have a fantastic bus/trolly system so I can see how you could live without one. A different world!

Hey... forget cars. I'm looking for the blonde hair, blue eyed girls in little outfits!! All I saw were McDonald's eating American tourists. Please send to my email account if you can't post them here. I won't tell. Hope your having fun!
