We concluded our trip with two full days in Stockholm. Staying with a family gave us a good glimpse into life there. It was also a blessing to save the expense of a hotel. Things are expensive in Sweden.
The streets in downtown Stockholm were teeming with young people. Fashion trends on display included tight jeans snug at the ankles, leggings, colorful silky scarves to off-set mostly black attire. Shops offered tourist trinkets, the cafes, coffee and pastries, the malls, high-end fashion items.
