Fun-Filled & Family FriendlyJune 17, 2019 in Sweden ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C
Being around cafes alot meant I got to observe casual social interactions often enough to notice how oddly fun they are here.. Fika is a loved thing here, and I think I've seen it in different ways. And more importantly, what I saw isn't what I expected! Maybe my particular location has something to do with it?
Not only was it of a gender reversal of roles but even an age one too... It was the men who sat down for a coffee with a pretty peice of pastry. And it was the huddle of grandmothers and their walking sticks who were rushing to get their beers and wines. And not a lot of younger folk at all..
Lots of babies though! I'm not sure I've seen so many strollers in such a short time. Even those bicycle-attached kid caravan type things. And all those kids have some sort of candy they were enjoying. Seriously! Also a known thing about these here parts of the world is their parental leave from work.. See photo for some envious details.. but as such, "latte papas" everywhere!
Oh and everyone has tattoos!!
Ps. No photos taken of the folk I observed for their own privacy!Read more
