I recently visited Sweden - a.k.a. the new standard in cool (sorry London).

Top Three Things Learned:

1. Everyone is Blond. Everyone.
2. On the rare occasion a car is sold, every stereo button is preset to the “all ABBA all the time” channel. (Weird.)
3. Due to the timely death of Ingmar Bergman (I hardly knew ye!) Jens Lekman is now routinely considered the new King of Sweden.

I think the important thing to remember is that even though the Swedes are cooler than us, they are in fact just like us.

Only better looking.

With a better health care system.

And free education available to all.
