Hiding out in a Summer House

Today on my expats in Sweden podcast….

Mike, who was born in Indonesia, not Holland, talks with us about escaping to summer houses during a pandemic, losing money on cancelled flights and constantly being mistaken for being South American.

As usual, we are recording remotely due to social distancing, so please forgive the sound quality. I assure you, the content is worth it!

Seriously Holland and Russia? Throw a tulip or a bear on there!

My son’s school is having a week long program with children’s choirs from around the world. Our family is hosting two girls from the Netherlands. One of the things we have to do is to find and collect the kids at the end of the concerts. We were told to simply look for the flag to find our group.

Russia is another country participating. Above is a picture of the Dutch and Russian flags.  Now you see why I went ten minutes in the opposite direction yesterday to the wrong group.

I plan on choosing students from a country with a more distinctive flag next time. I’m hoping for some kids from Martinique. (Google it.)
