Today in Swedish class, we made our own Swedish time capsules – “tidkista” in Swedish. We were supposed to choose items which represent typical Sweden today. Here were my contributions:
Swedish Time Capsule
Song> Robyn’s Dancing on My Own, and not just because Nik’s cousin is/was her drummer; it’s a good song, and I think it represents the importance of personal independence for many Swedes
Technical appliance> i phone, no question – everyone seems to have one, except me that is
Smell> maybe because I got a whiff on my way to class, but I’d say the smell of hotdogs; sounds weird, I know, but hotdog stands are everywhere in Stockholm – and tasty too!
Article of clothing> Converse sneakers, the brighter the better
Meal> tacos. yep, Sweden loves tacos; go to the smallest grocery store in the country – I guarantee they’ve got a whole aisle devoted to tortillas, salsas, guacamole, seasoning – if it goes on a taco, it’ll be there
What would you put in a time capsule?
