It seems our time in Sweden is coming to an end. Tomorrow I have my last Swedish class, and after that I’m headed to Gothenburg to apply for a new Russian visa (don’t ask why I’m not applying in Stockholm, it’s a long story). We’re still not exactly sure when we’re heading to St. Petersburg, but it looks like it will be mid-June. We’ll be back here again sooner or later, though. At the very least, I have to come back in August to hand in my thesis.

On the one hand, it would be nice to stay longer in Sweden. On the other hand, after 10 months in quiet, boring Falun, most of which I have thoroughly enjoyed, I am looking forward to being in a big city again. Earning money again will be nice too. This year has been a good exercise in frugality, but frugality isn’t much fun.
