I see that we had breakfast on deck, back to the cabin to clean teeth,
Edna wrote up her journal and then we did a mile walk around the deck
and this was all before going on the coach tour which left at 9.45.
Wouldn't do it now! An excellent courier (Anneka), born and bred in
Stockholm but lived for 27 years in the USA. Had a comprehensive tour
with several photo stops but only took a couple including one of a statue
who Anneka said was Ebert Taub (1890-1976) a poet and songwriter who
is well known in Sweden (but nowhere else?). Saga's CEO came on board
and held a cocktail party the next day to which I wore my Teddy Boy
drape. When shaking hands the CEO (Andrew) exclaimed "What's this
we have here then!". It usually causes a reaction!
the shuttle bus into Town (dropped by the Opera) and walked over to
the Old Town (Gamla Stan), via the House of Parliament, and had a good
look around (much too much for Edna's liking). Lovely City (but aren't
all European Capitals?).
