The days are now deliciously long, and the night never gets completely dark. Stockholm is at its balmy best, all blue sky and golden buildings and sparkling water. It's taken me four years to feel for myself the metamorphosis one undergoes when summer hits Sweden. Talk about being born again.
Sunrise: 3:46 a.m.; sunset: 9:47 p.m.
The Swedish word for the day is beslut. It means decision.
