I like to bicycle over a bridge on my way to a friend and see the sea and the trees, the 18:th century and the 21:st.

I like the reggae café by Årstaviken, having a coffee in a low sun chair, sitting outside by the water with a woolen plaid though it isn't really warm enough.

I like the Asian shop whose owner always recognizes us and who remembers when I and my kids first came there 12 years ago.

I like lots about Stockholm.

I dislike the greedy, self-boosting, humourless official side of Stockholm, the stupid ambition to grow just for the sake of growing, to attract the rich and expel the poor.
I dislike the segregation and the dumbly inadequate car traffic.

I prefer the suburbs, mostly the southern ones. They are green and quiet and still so close to everything. Kungsholmen and Södermalm are also great for walking, bicycling, talking, having a coffee or eating.

Stockholm is safe. People are afraid, especially women, but I think someone wants us to be scared and dependent. If you aren't drunk and if you wear clothes in which you can run if you need to, it is safe. I can walk anywhere alone, any time of the day and night, and it's safe.

Stockholm may be rainy or sunny, cloudy or clear, cold or hot, it depends on the season. But I think I like the rain best.

I like the fact that Stockholm's close to nature and yet also close to citylife.
I don't like a specific type of personality that most teenagers are; stureplans-wannabees. they are shallow.
a great place to hang out is sofo, south of folkungagatan. good people. good nightlife. great shops.
stockholm, and whole sweden is kinda expensive. especially compared to eastern europe.

yes, it can be dangerous. but it depends on if you get in to the right taxicabs and so. otherwise is sweden pretty most one of the most safest countries in the world, because the people are so lazy.

the weather in stockholm changes from hour to hour. the winters are cold. the summers are hot, but the summerevenings can be cold too. mostly there's 1 month when the summer is really hot, and the rest is raining and cloudy.
be aware of the time; the summer days are long - the sun is up almost 24 hours. the winternights are long - the sun is only up a few hours.

there's nothing to do in the suburbs, if you're only a tourist. yet the suburbs are where most people live. they can be rich people and less rick people. there are some gettho's in the suburbs too.

when in stockholm; you should shop clothes from internationally unknown swedish designers - they are good with basics. you should also swim in mälaren. you should go to stureplan in at least one evening. and you have to see the city in the darkness, because it's so fucking beautiful.
