Sweden Is The New Great Britain...

To me. I love all things British; especially when it comes to music. However, all things Swedish are turning out to be quite dapper. The race is on! Here are a few reasons why Sweden is approaching Great Britain's status in my mind:

1. Abba - they've been training for years to be in this race
2. The Concretes - HELLO! With lyrics like "You can't hurry love" or "He gives me sugar again instead of salt," you KNOW I'm bound to love 'em
3. Envelopes - the band, NOT the thing you put a letter in
4. IKEA
5. Massages
6. Ricard (Tina's friend) - somebody please get me a picture!

What country's culture are you particulary interested in? Mongolia, anyone?

I am very glad you've discovered Sweden. I love it (and just bought a whole bunch of IKEA furniture for my new apt.). Check out Roxette (band) also--they're great, too! Also: moose, lots of beautiful lakes, millions of stars at night because virtually no light pollution, awesome coast landscapes, nice, rough northern weather... Aaah! I love Sweden!! And my best friend ever is Swedish!

Hmm, that's how I feel about Denmark.

And Ann Christensen would argue the case for Mongolia.

The Swedes are unpretentious, kind and value social equality. Those are the best things. But they get along really well with English people so your love for British and Swedish things can naturally and happily co-exist. You have most excellent taste.
