New Year is usually a quiet time Ake. A Gothenburg NYE I can imagine must have been a blast...250,000 parading in the snow. I can only imagine the cold...but the Swedish do not feel the cold I hear! One year we spent NYE with Aspiring Nomad overlooking the Bund in Shanghai but it is usually a quiet time for us.
