Some of my classmates have blogs, but only German ones:

Here’s one in French from here, but I don’t know the writer:


Since we moved from the dormitory into our own apartment, we don’t have a television. I’m not a big fan of TV, but I kind of think we should get one here — it’s good for helping us learn more about Swedish culture and language. Of course we wouldn’t watch any of the numerous American programs which are merely subtitled and not dubbed into Swedish!

Anyway, the main thing that I miss now that we don’t have a TV is the nicest reality show ever — Bonde Söker Fru, or “Farmer Seeks Wife”. They got a bunch of cute and humble farmers together, women from all over Sweden wrote them letters, and now they’re showing the process of them meeting. OK, the idea sounds a bit gross, but the execution is classy. Really.

It’s become one of the most popular shows ever. Here’s an article about it.

About This Blog

I'm an American who started blogging when I moved to Russia in 2004. Eventually I moved to Sweden, where life is pleasant but uneventful, and stopped blogging for lack of interesting things to say. And then I joined Facebook, which further destroyed any motivation for blogging. Maybe someday I'll start blogging again, but for now, this blog is dormant, an archive of The Russia Years: 2004-2008.
