You know what? I have gone several places in the past few months. I'm not going in order here. In August, I went to Sweden! This time it was Gothenburg, on the west coast, so now I've been to both sides of the country. The visit was for a library conference, but it was a lot of fun, too. I saw so many cool things.

An ABBA cover band opened the conference. You have not lived until you've seen 5000 librarians get up and dance with glee.

On our first night, we met up with some fun Danish and Finish librarians and stayed out all night barhopping. I think this photo was taken at about 3am in the "shittiest bar in Gothenburg!"

I ate a lot of good food and drank a lot of free wine. This table represents maybe 1/3 of the wine consumed by two people at one reception. Oops.

We visited several libraries. I won't bore you with the dozens of photos I took, but at one, I found a printer named for me.

We saw Jose Gonzales with the Gothenburg String Theory for free in the street because the city cultural festival was happening.

Cass and I rode hotel bicycles around town one day (yes, I was in a dress).

With two friends, I ate at a Michelin rated restaurant. My lamb was AMAZING.

Cass and I went to a two-day music festival and it kicked ass. Let's just say I've never been to a better festival in all my years. The lineup was fantastic and there were club shows for three nights. Crazy.


LCD Soundsystem was great, and we were way up front.

On our last day, we went to the archipelago for a rainy ferry ride. It was gorgeous.
