After the course was over I went to my friend J and here family and stayed in there summer cottage over the midsummer weekend. We celebrated midsummer by having a party, eating and drinking a lot of good things. Read more here and here about Swedish midsummer. And after that we went up for the hill to an open place there the maypole was put up and after that many people danced around it and some folk musicians was playing. I didn’t dance; instead I took a lot of pictures… In Dalarna, a province of Sweden, the celebrating of midsummer has the most traditional practice. Every little village has its own maypole and ways to celebrate midsummer. It may look funny and a bit silly but it’s a nice tradition and a weekend almost everyone looks forward to.
After the dance we went home again and played kubb, and old Swedish outdoor game. My team was best and we won! Even if winning isn’t so important it always nice to be in the winning team.
I had a great time at J:s place, but the weather could have been better, it was raining a lot. The sun was shining some of the time and then we was out just relaxing in the sun, taking a fika and went shopping some to. We watch some movies in the evening and played some cards and stuff like that. Ahh, I love having holidays!
