I had to say my goodbyes to Firat and his friends as well. There were moments of serious debate in my visit to Stockholm where I considered staying. Maybe there would be a bar or hostel that desperately needed an english-speaker and in the meantime, I could practice a new language and hang out with my ready-made group of friends. But for whatever reason, I had it in my head to continue on my course. I may live to regret that, but for now I'll just have to see.
So with one last walk around the city, I was off. Goodbye to my friends and two weeks of pure comfort and contentment. Goodbye to the language whose "hello" sounds like "hey" (hej) and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy whenever I enter a store. LIke everyone remembers me or wants to be my buddy. Goodbye to salted-black licorice... Seriously, goodbye. There's zero sentiment there. As far as I'm concerned, that one can just be gone. Blech!
But as for the rest of the country (minus the questionable taste in candy), I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and the chance to get to know a piece of it. And I can say in all honesty, I have yet to meet a Swede I didn't like. That is, of course, unless you count ABBA.
