Party at Catrin's place

_MAL8714, originally uploaded by Michael A. Lowry.

My new Lindy-hopping friend Catrin invited me to an impromptu party at her place in Hammarby Hojden, not too far from where Lotta lives.

Catrin had an excellent spread of food prepared, including an amazing carrot soup the recipie to which I have requested. As is the custom in Sweden, each person brought something to drink; so there were a dozen or so bottles of wine opened throughout the evening.

It was a fun party with lots of interesting and friendly people. I saw a few folks there that I already knew, including Coco, another Lindy hop dancer.

Debaser Saturday night

Maria invited me to join her, Johan & Susanna at Debaser on Saturday. The music was loud and the beer, umm, alcoholic.

After a while we found a relatively quiet table in the back and enjoyed chatting for a while. I also ran into fellow Lindy hop dancer Daniel and met a nice woman named Anna there.

Dinner & bowling with colleagues

Yesterday afternoon I attended a meeting with colleagues, some of whom I had never met before. After the meeting we got a chance to visit with one another over drinks and dinner. Then, a bit later in the evening, we went bowling at Södra Bowlinghallen on Hornsgatan across from Mariatorget. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed getting the opportunity to meet my new colleagues.

Thôt @ GMC

Monday night after my Lindy hop lesson, I swung by Gleen Miller Café for a while. There, a band called Thôt played some nice improvisational jazz.
