Heal the worrrllldd !!!! Make it a better placeeee... For ya and for me and the entire human race ( credits goes to michael J.)
Of course, i always lived " abroad" and then it was prolly easier for me to make these kind of friendships than most of the folks..
But.. come on .. with internet you can make friends all over the world nowadays.. so no .. actually.. if you do not have any international friends.. shame on you .. burn in hell .. and go throw some petroleum on your self !!! i'll bring the lighter !
Let's go "in" the subject so !
The very good thing about these specific friends is that they have a different view of the world and often very diff interests..
And in a lot of ways it forces us to know about all these subjects .. because if they're friends , we actually do care about them !
This week was quite amazing tho.
My friend MTD ( she will so recognize herself) had to cancel our special " french raclette dinner" because of the Revolution in kirghizstan ( yeah i know dear reader that you prolly dont give a shit about that country and that you surely didnt know there were a country named that way ) it's a country in asia and an ex urss satellite. You definitively google it ( go get culture !!!)
Then, in the sad news, APR, told me about the death of the evil twin kaczynski.. ex president of poland ( yeah let's face it , he is death now) that is sad and i never wish the death of anybody .. but i did'nt like the guy or at least his policies so even tho the loss is bad for him and the 132 others passengers, let's get optimistic for the future of Poland.. and No i don't believe in the conspiracy theory( cf linked to the russians).
You can actually check apr comments on Here ! she is the one living in stockholm so you can't miss her ;)
Nice testimony ;)
but let's go back to some more happy news .. Because Honestly and you know me, death and serious subjects .. are sooooo over for me lol i mean it's so 2001 !
So thanks to my international friends I also know that the 'turkish yaourt ' is using the picture of a greek man ( that is sueing the company here in sweden) Yeah Because you know even tho they quite look alike and they do have the same kind of dances and food .. they're different and they usually dont like each other...
BUT Thanks to your special friends, you also even learn things from where you live ! and so Christina, one of my very old friend from OZ told me about the swedish prince ! Carl Philip , who is basically doing nothing of his life, is dating Sofia Hellqvist a big pin up trashy girl ;)
I liked to read in aftonbladet ( a swedish "newspaper" that you can check online by the way here ) how embarrasing it would be for Sweden if the stupid useless swedish prince brings the horny reality tv show girl at the wedding of the daddy's girl , soon to be queen, Victoria the 19th of june.
Victoria is kind tho, useless too, but at least she can speaks .. not like her dad .. or her mom ...
But gosh she is gonna marry that guy .. geez christ ..
Then no wonder Sweden is going well hahah
But so, I could keep going on the obamacare, on the romanian eurovision entry, on the thai food, ... you prolly got my point like 45 mns ago !
I like that in a few days you get infos on so many countries and in so many different areas ;)
You should add to this, that you often try food from their countries (you can never pronounce it anyway) like i love that polish thing with potatoes and some kind of meat inside ! i also love that greek food with the cheese that u do in the oven ! ANd i adore the food made by Keti from Georgia ( not the us state) with kind of garlikish auberginas yuuumms !!
So, people broad your mind! Broad your circle of friends ! Get new ones! Get them coming from far away ! get them different ! Your life will get so much better ;)
Wow it's been a while since the last time i wrote on my blog :)
well you know how it is.. "semester" :)
i wont compare Stockholm and Lyon cause in my heart Lyon would definitively win :)
I finally had the occasion to meet Nelly that i didnt meet since like a year !!! my lord !! never again !! i was so glad to share some moments with her again..
Napoleon wanted to destroy it because of the attachment the city shown for the king ..
Lyon is one of the oldest city in europe ( amazing isnt it) and was the center of the world in 1555 ( yah amazing too) :)
when i knew that i was going to live in Lyon i was so sad.. well u know Lyon is said to be cold ( there is something we call the "Lyon's Wall" which means that the people living over there are as friendly as the swedes LOL)
but after some years, i finally dealt with it and well i saw other french cities like Bordeaux, Toulouse, Montpellier, Paris.. and Lyon is without any contest the most beautiful of all these cities :) i mean there is so much to see in that city.. the painted walls like this one
it is just bad that the city is kinda unknown ( despite the fact that they do have a really good aiport and that for exemple you can go to NYC or Stockholm from lyon in direct flight !!)
well i could speak about that city for so long .. that would turn really boring ( blahh interesting u unculturated)
eating a wonderful couscous that Sandra and Nelly made for me ( awwwwww) !!
i mean i like living in sweden but they miss so many things outta here (ahaha) and i'm not just speaking about gastronomy but also about achitectura :)
U can say u visited France if u didnt stop in Lyon ( after all it's also the second biggest city of France :)
A friend of sthlmboi, Anna, studied in Lyon last year in my university (Lyon3) and she just loved it !! actually everyone who comes like it , the problem is just that most of the people just go through the city and dont really stop in it ..
I do hope u enjoyed the little visit through the pics nd that maybe u will think about visiting this City :)
