Monkey and I went to Skansen in Stockholm. Skansen is like a Williamsburg, VA but for all of Sweden. It has buildings that were donated from all over Sweden, from different time periods. They were lifted wholesale from their original locations and put down in Skansen in different areas, so that there are farmsteads and schoolhouses and churches from different times and places and as you walk the grounds you can travel through time and culture. There’s also a town portion with a baker, a printer, an herbalist, and others.
The Christmas Market portion was a bit like a Renaissance Faire, though. Lots of food and things to buy, and everyone had their own little stall with a name and a picture above them. For the first time I realized how helpful those little pictures really are — considering all the names of things were in Swedish.
