Celebrate my quadranscentennial with oysters and wine and meat at Griffins Steakhouse and 7 homemade courses because I’ve even more reason to be pretentious now. Some nostalgic drooling over the baked goods of my childhood did also occur.DSC_0467

Finally see the infamous Stockholm Metro art at T-Centralen. Very awe-inspiring and immersive. I wish we had time to see the other stations. We will be back.

And a surprising amount of other cultural bits and pieces given the short time we had, like visit Fotografiska, which undoubtedly is one of the most impressive galleries I’ve ever visited.
