Along with the importance of fika, is the importance of knowing your neighbors. I live in a big apartment building in a fairly lively neighborhood (for Southern Sweden that is). One of my neighbors, who is also a classmate, decided to host a potluck. She put invitations on every door in our building. We brought little foods to share and talked the night away. I even got to try something I'd never had before. Snails! They weren't so bad. Kind of like firmer muscles.

In other news, we set the clocks back today. I'm not sure why Europe does it a week ahead of the States but this morning I woke up to light! I was so happy. But then, I went into the grocery story at 4 pm and when I came out at 4:45 it was dark out. I had to turn my lights on my bike to go home. The darkness is going to be rough.
And, it's time to get back to studying. I have a study group coming over tonight. I made banana bread and we'll drink tea. But it won't be fika because we'll be studying.
