Unfortunately I did not “hit the ground running” this morning. I’m still feeling poorly so I didn’t follow the itinerary I had planned. Instead I saw other sights around town and I was able to get a fair amount of sightseeing accomplished. To start, I followed Rick Steves’s walking tour of Old Stockholm which includes the Royal Palace. I snapped a photo of the palace (on the right), the cathedral (in the back), and a statue of a king of Sweden on his horse in the middle. Later there was a changing of the guard that was fairly impressive and included a marching band. The Nobel Museum is nearby and I toured that. Martin Luther King was the person featured and it was interesting to see the displays about him and his life. Later in the day I walked through the central park called Kungstradgarden. Stockholm is a multiethnic place and there was a Korean Culture Festival going on. And that’s about all I got done today. I am hopeful that tomorrow I will feel better and have a bit more energy.
