A few days ago I got a text message from a friend in Falun asking me where I had gotten my new passport pictures taken last January. See, I had such a positive experience that I told everyone about it and even blogged about it. So I found Åke Lindholm’s business card, and sent my friend the info.

I was very shocked to get a message back from her today saying that Åke died two months ago. He had appeared to be about 50 and quite healthy. I looked for an obituary on the Darlanas Tidningar website, and discovered that he died in a sailing accident. How sad.

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.
