Land of salmon and asparagus trees

This week, we’ve had a record amount of seeds floating through the air that look a lot like snow and are covering the ground in Stockholm.

The seeds are from willow and aspen trees, but if one were to try to use Google Translate to figure out where this is coming from, the translation would look like this:

Istället handlar det om rekordstora mängder frön från att sälg- och aspträd som slagit ut.
Instead, it is about record-high amounts of seeds from salmon and asparagus trees that have struck out.

Generally, this is how I translate most news stories in my head when reading quickly. However, I was wondering…. if this was true, can you imagine how horrible the forest would smell?

From the Land of Sun and Dirt to the Land of Ice and Snow

On this week’s podcast episode:

Fotis, from Greece, is getting really tired of eating so much salmon here. Can we please find a way to get fresher tasting vegetables? Also, we discover that in Swedish, the word “mambo” does not mean a type of dance.
