We went to the ancient Viking city of Birka, which used to look like this:

It was a fabulous visit, despite the lack of anything left. The city is on an island on Lake Malaren, so there's a boat involved in getting there (love!) and once there our tour guide was tops.

We were at the front of the fence at wild boar feeding time. Those pigs were delirious! Being that they're my favorite animal at Skansen, this was the best part of my day.
The cotton candy stands alone.
