Heaven is listening to multiple languages at once and trying to make sense of them all. The Russian woman with raven hair and red nails mumbling to her baby. The Swedish teenagers who are drunk at 9 am on a Sunday and talking about all the fun they had last night. The middle-aged ones discussing left-wing politics in Britain. The Spanish couple with husky voices discussing monkeys. The happy German family: the parents laughing while the daughter annoyingly (and rather loudly) repeats “gib mir dein ipod, bitte, bitte, bitte…”.
It was raining in Stockholm today – but the city was lovely, as always. We were all sleepy and not so very keen on getting wet. So we stayed inside, talking about travelling and drinking coffee and tea and hot chocolate all at once.
