Here is Ching's blog entry on her visit to Stockholm early March
Ching in Stockholm
I came to Stockholm in the beginning of March, chilly air surrounded me.
I walked between small alleyway in Gamla Stan,
Snowflakes were falling down slowly and landed on my winter coat in a gentle way.
I passed by the frozen river and climbed up a few small hills overlooking this city.
I saw the houses with warm colours, boats berthed in the port, the spire of a church.
I went through a busy crowd in city,
And enjoyed spending time in the world’s longest art gallery - underground stations in Stockholm.
When the cold weather made me lose feeling in my fingers,
it was time to go for a hot drink in coffee shop, let’s “fika fika”!!
I first went to Cafe Pascal and had an Oat Latte and Kanelbulle.
The coffee tasted smooth and mild, cinnamon bun was amazing!
The coffee shop was busy when I came there, everyone enjoy their fika time,
A lively atmosphere filled up the house.
For my second coffee I went to Drop Coffeehouse
I tried the El Salvador coffee which the barista recommend.
The beans were roasted by Drop roasters, and had notes of lime juice and white grapes.
The coffee smelled like nut, but tasted fruity.
Whilst I enjoy this lovely coffee, it had started snowing outside,
I watched snow drops on the floor through the glass door,
It seemed like time stopped at this moment,
And made me feel peaceful and comfortable.
