We woke up to fog and dreariness today, and decided to dispel the gloom with an excursion to a new part of Stockholm and a ´castle´ we had read about. Our target was Åkeshov slott. Once there, we found a lovely manor house. Unfortunately, it was closed to the public except for conferences (which were not ongoing today). We strolled the park nearby, but decided we needed a snack after the cross-town subway trip.
Although the nearby garden shop and greenhouse had a restaurant, it was completely packed. They were having an ´orchid exhibit´... So, we headed down town. And this is what we found...
A cute cafe in an old theater (now church of some sort)! Beautiful ceilings and cheap coffee, with free påtår (refill)!
Creepy artistic shot. can you picture the ghost of a Victorian lady
peeking through the doorway? ... I can...
When we got home, we carved a pumpkin and sliced another one up for soup. Of course we roasted the seeds. We´re going to try the soup in the morning. Well, after Swedish class and a trip to the store, respectively.
No trick-or-treaters here, but we did see a few kids dressed up as who knows what when we were out on our trek to the cafe.
