I'm in Sweden

No...Not Switzerland, Sweden. It amazes me how often Americans confuse the two countries JUST because they both start with "Sw". One of my pet peeves about Americans is that so many of us are absolutely terrible at geography. There, I've said it: I'm a geography snob. I can pretty much point out and name any country on an unlabeled map. Understanding geography is so vital to understanding wars, politics, culture and people. A tool that so many Americans sadly lack. Anyway, enough with my rant. I love my home and God Bless the USA.

However, my mother-in-law happens to live in Sweden so we are here for a visit. Sweden is a nice place, although very Swedish. I've finally got a few minutes to post because I'm at Bus Fabriken, an indoor play place that is nicer than any I've ever seen at home. It's also funny to look around and all the kids here look like The Village of the Damned. Ok, I'm off to climb a volcano with Chip!

I wish that I had read this post earlier because it gave me a good chuckle. My husband is from Switzerland, NOT Sweden. The best comment I ever received about that mix-up was, "Are they the same country?"
