Things (i think) i know about Sweden. Tama naman kaya?

Early tomorrow, me and several of my colleagues will be going on a 14-hour flight to Sweden. Like many of my travel buddies, this will be my first time to visit that country.

Here are some things i know about Sweden. But, i wonder… will this be enough to prepare me for the culture shock that is sure to come? SANA NAMAN HINDI! Masarap kasi yung nasa-shock paminsan-minsan. Even if only for 10 days. πŸ™‚

Sweden… located in the Scandinavian region and bordered by Norway, Denmark and Finland…

  • has a population of less than 10 million (mas marami pang tao sa Metro Manila), with 10% being composed of immigrants
  • pasok na sa Arctic Circle ang northernmost niyang province, kung saan maraming Reindeer at Moose (ang plural ba nito ay “Meese”? hehehe)
  • sila ang gumagawa ng Saab at Volvo na sasakyan atΒ sa kanila rin galing ang IKEA at ang Astra-Zenica (na naka-imbento nung pampa-payat na pills)
  • maliban sa bandang ABBA, taga-Sweden din ang Roxette
  • malakas ang partidong Social Democrats sa kanilang pulitika pero, dahil sa economic crisis, lumalakas ngayon ang mga konserbatibo at kontra-immigrants na sektor
  • naging “neutral” sila noong World War 2 pero napilitan pa rin silang payagang dumaan-daan sa kanilang teritoryo ang mga pwersa ni Hitler
  • mahilig silang uminom ng Vodka. πŸ™‚
  • and, most importantly, hindi pala sa kanila nagsimula ang “Swidden Farming
