Back in Stockholm

After nine months in Spain I am back in Stockholm and the feelings are mixed. To drive over the Öresundsbron (the bridge between Denmark and Sweden) and suddenly be surrounded by the 100 shades of green and the open and intensely yellow fields of rape. And then the Liljeholmsbron that brings me on the island of Södermalm – one of Stockholms´ islands, the one I live on – and enter the city … A very emotional experience. Euphoria mixed with the pain of seeing beggars on the streets and the mad, hysterical beat of making and spending money to impress on each other…

Do I love or hate this city? Do I want to stay or do I want to move out of here for good?
