Hope everybody's midsummer was good! It is saturday today and I am at the office writing this post because I left my laptop here. Yesterday was midsummer and I had such a great time! In China midsummer is not a holiday so it was a normal work day here in Shanghai. I had signed up for the annual midsummer party hosted by Swedish young professionals because it is midsummer, you know? The event was at Four Seasons hotel (run by a swede) and we were out on the terasse with a very nice view of the city. What surprised me was that there were so many attending, it must have been about 100 people there at least. Dinner consisted of traditional swedish foods, my favorite was the salmon of course, but everything else was really good as well. I met some people that I knew from before, but I also got to know a lot of people during the dinner, chinese as well as swedish. My sister is here visiting too, so she tagged along. According to the chinese people I talked to, who were representatives from a company that sponored the event, the swedes are much better at partying than norweigans, haha! Yesterday night was no exception and we all ended up having a good time dancing in a local night club here in Shanghai.
Now I am heading out, tonight is a good bye party for a an american guy from last night, apparentely he and a bunch of swedes live just right by me, pretty great I think!
