I considered a visit until the out lawed prostitution. That is sorta like Amsterdam without pot. Why bother. They have a country polulation smaller than at least 8 states in the USA. Hell, Los Angeles is almost as big as Sweden in population. Don't really care for log throwing, rock lifting, Lutefisk or stocky women. My Great grand parents were 100% Swedish. They moved to the American Midwest and never looked back or went back. Brought every relative to the states within 10 years of their arrival here. That tells me a lot. Lousy weather. To cold and wet. Not true cold, just sissy cold. To northern to be warm, too southern to be really cold. Plenty wet though. Good Viking country as nobody would bother going up there to cahse them down after they pillaged and plundered. It is easy to see why most tourists are just from neighboring countries or the English. If I was to fly half way around the world I can sse no reason to make Sweden the destination. Don't care for Volvo, Absolut Vodka, Saab, the Nobel Prizes mean little any more and I definitely do not like ABBA. Not even ice skating or sking. Definitely not a drug decrimilization country. Socialized medicine. Wow I bet that draws top physicians. Not. I do not care for socialisism, Marxism or welfare states ideology. But thats just me. I'm just a mutt puppy American and I am proud to be a veteran for a country that fights for democracy not socializm. Last I heard U.S. citizenship is still the most sought citizenship in the world.
