Midsummer

Today is Midsummer in Sweden. The actual summer solstice is on Sunday, but the celebration is on the Friday closest to the solstice. It's for practical reasons - nobody wants to have to go to work the next day if they can at all avoid it. No celebration for us here in Osaka - just as well; I'm still embarrassed from getting far too drunk last year - but we did have a vaguely north-European dinner tonight, with German sausages, smoked salmon, goat-cheese toast and mashed potatoes with dill.

Happy Midsummer, wherever you are!

Jag har helt missat midsommar och trodde det var nästa helg eller någon annan gång. Jag får skylla på tsuyu, regnsäsongen, som gör det omöjligt att följa månen och de vanliga årstiderna.

Bortsett från det, glad midsommar, ha det bra i Osaka.
