I'm presently in Germany, about to give yet another talk. Yesterday, I had the great idea to get a flu shot with the result that today I feel pretty shitty, like, as if I'm getting the flu. Best conditions to give a seminar. On the upside, I finally managed to get my BlackBerry desktop manager to download the photos I've been taking, so here's some quick blogging.
Yesterday, Stefan and I walked by booths selling Christmas candy and gloves and toys and that stuff. The below photo shows the sign on one of them. It reads "Negerküsse," literally "Negro's kisses." It's a sort of candy, a soft fluffy cream covered by chocolate. They are meanwhile mostly called "chocolate kisses," but occasionally, as you see here, the older word creeps up.
And here's another photo from my BlackBerry. That coffee looked better than it was:
And another image that I found worth taking. This is nearby the parking lot behind the AlbaNova University building
And finally a random shot somewhere in Stockholm during the summer:
