Tuesday, June 15


Oh my, the last couple of days have been so hectic! I was supposed to post this blog entry this past Sunday morning, but my laptop broke down. Then we got stuck on the airport on our way home to Sweden, and an 11 hour trip became a 15 hour trip. And when we finally got home, my internet was down. Oh, the humanity! Anyways...

On Saturday we took the subway over to 77th and Broadway and had a lovely breakfast at the Manhattan Diner. Then we walked into the Park...

The sun was shining through the foliage and it all looked very magical.

In Central Park every park bench is donated in memory of a loved one. Sometimes reading the plaques makes you want to cry.

We saw the flowers in the Shakespeare Garden...

...and crossed the park, passing the lake which was green, like pea soup...

...before we went to look at the Alice in Wonderland statues.

I wanted to photograph the statue, but it was covered in climbing children.

Then we left the park.

And went to visit the stuffed animals at wonderful wonderful (and scary) toy store FAO Schwartz. When I was a kid my mom and dad used to buy Christmas presents for me here when they were in NY, and I remember thinking of it as some kind of heaven.

The pandas were cute, but not as adorable as our own Panda.

I wanted to buy a jawbreaker but thought the better of it since I don't really like sticky candy and only wanted one because Dolores has one in Lolita (the second version). Oh, and because of the cult classic Jawbreaker, of course.

In the dancing section you can buy as many different tutus and leotards as you could make up. They really have, like, every color!

After spening about an hour at FAO Schwartz we walked behind a stylish girl and her cute dog all the way down Fifth Ave...

...and hurried to get to a bar that showed the USA-England game. We found Andy's, a burger joint with really awesome cheddar cheeseburgers and one of the coolest/scariest/most impressive waitresses I've every met. She would only refer to me as babydoll, how could I not love her? ;)

I'm gonna show you our last day as well, later. It was a short but good day. Now I'm back home in Stockholm, which is a city I love, but I must say I love NY even more. In the future I'm gonna live there, I can't really imagine living anywhere else. So, how have you guys been?
