Welcome PiecesofGlass! Great to have you here - the Swedish people are to be very admired. Speaking about ABBA, I'm 69 and just had an email exchange with Sergey in Moscow. Sometimes we discuss Slavic culture and history but in this exchange he told me about a 40 minute phone conversation with our friend Ella in Ukraine. Ella is an 18 year old orphan now out of the orphanage where she has lived since being abandoned at birth. She is learning to be a seamstress in a vocational school in Lugansk and she is a favorite young lady of Sonia who lives in California and through Sonia, of me. Somehow Sergey and Ella discussed ABBA and it is one of her favorite groups and also is one of Sergey's favorites and also is one of mine. That spans some generations doesn't it? And long distances.

Don't go away after your school project, we would have much to learn from you PeacesofGlass!

Barbara L, which part of Sweden are your mother's parents from? I'd recommend you to come to Sweden in spring, or early summer, if you ever get to do it. The winter is kind of cold, and rainy, at least in the southern parts..

David Cottrell, ABBA is wide known, feels like that's what everyone's thinking about when you mention Sweden. That and IKEA x)
And I will probably stay even after that project is done. Feels like I can learn a lot here :)

I honestly don't know. I believe one of them was from the southern part, I think a small town that started with "M", but I don't know about the other. They died when I was too young to remember them. They didn't talk about Sweden very much with my mom, aunts, and uncles when they were growing up, which is a shame.

Welcome from a old English lad. Great to have you. I have had many Swedish pancakes with Lingonberries so good
