My first trip to Scandinavia

Maybe it is due to living in Madrid, the sunniest city in Europe, but on reaching ´colder´ countries I am always told that I have brought the sun with me and that it had been raining continuously until my plane landed. This time it was no different in the capitals of Norway and Sweden, whose streets were filled with sun-worshippers in shorts and flip-flops, although as always, in the very latest trendy fashion. We were nearing Midsummer Day, the longest of the year, with the sun going down as late as 11 o´clock at night.
