Our Swedish teacher asked our class of students from all over the world today what we thought was different about Sweden and Swedes. She was bombarded by shouting:
“They all drink coffee. All the time! They never stop drinking coffee!”
“Everything is white – the walls, the furniture. These people are obsessed with white!”
“They’re super quiet until they drink. Then they don’t shut up!”
“Darkness…Oh, the darkness!”
Our teacher just shook her head and said, “never mind, never mind” and let us leave 5 minutes early.
And are their coffees white too?
You would think.
