I love being an expat in Sweden. I’m in the American Club, the American Women’s Club, the International Women’s Club and Democrats Abroad. And then there is Internations and XING. So dare I join another expat group? Well I can at least attend one of their events and see what I’m missing. So I went the the Global Expat Partners New Year Reception at the City of Stockholm’s Tourist Office.

In addition to free wine, beer and food another good reason to attend was Colin Moon who gave an entertaining presentation on how Swede’s view the world. Here’s a preview of his breakdown of the Swedes:

Now, my Swede was with me and he laughed at his Swedishness along with the rest of us, which included my Swedish American girlfriend it was so nice to run into and my American friend who is very Swedish after 33 years living in Sweden. It was so nice to see her too. And the other couple I knew. And another two ladies I’d met before. And I met some new nice people. So it is worth my while to be invovle with yet another expat group. Nice! Nice things happen to me in Sweden.
