A lot has happened since the last post. We moved into our new studio apartment yesterday in Huvudsta, which is in the Northwest of Stockholm in an area called Solna. Our apartment is a little musty smelling because its in the basement but other than that its pretty sweet. The rent is about 4,000 Kronors per month which translates into about $570 per month. That's cheap even with the shitty exchange rate. Before Bush's idiotic Gulf War II, 4,000 Kronos was about $400.
We went shopping yesterday at (surprise surprise) IKEA and bought a bunch of new stuff for the apartment. I have a little cold and the new apartment isn’t helping while the dust settles. Since I can’t post these messages in real time (I don’t have access to an Internet connection except downtown at the café) so I must write them all down at home which is admittedly a little lame. It has been a month and one week since I had good reliable Internet access. I made Linda promise to call the broadband people today. Things should get back to normal soon. Thank God Linda is Swedish and not a Zulu princess or something. Living in Swaziland I bet they consider dial-up a luxury.
Also, I got a call from Monty from LA. He is coming to stay with us in Sweden to record some music. He has a website but I can't find the link at the moment. It will be fun to have someone to party with. I should be settled in by then.
I really liked the pad out in Drottningholm with all the castles and rich people, but its just not my scene. It's so nice to have our own place!
