So here I am. American gal, born and raised in Toledo, Ohio and now living here in Stockholm, Sweden! I kind of have to pinch myself a little to think I’m really here - maybe I’m partly writing this blog to convince myself it was all real!
Not exactly sure what my impressions are so far, it’s all kind of in a haze of jet lag, and just kind of ‘did I just step into Oz weirdness’. I’ve been kind of Euro-obsessed my whole life, I took French in high school (bonjour!) and feel like my personality and outlook on life is kind of more European. I’m pretty open minded.
Which is a good thing because when I went into the tiniest pharmacy you ever saw in your entire life last night, guess what was on the self, right there for everyone to see - vibrators! I swear to God (sorry mom, you know I don’t know what one is or anything!!) - they were right there on the shelf next as bold as day. Where I come from, that’s the kind of thing you order off the internet and it comes in a plain brown envelope (not that I ever did!!!). I mean, kids could have seen them!! But whatever floats your boat right, to paraphrase, I guess I’m not in Toledo any more!!
