Something unexpected

There appears to be a large quantity of very drunk looking schoolgirls, mostly wearing sailor hats, coming out of the school opposite the office, climbing onto a truck decorated with birch trees and playing very loud music. Some of them are holding signs with baby pictures on them. One is given to understand it is some sort of Swedish graduation ritual. One is also reliably informed that there will be lots of drunk high school types all over Stockholm tonight. I assume that is unlikely to include Arlanda airport which is where I'll be going... However, apparently, this state of affairs is likely to continue till next Friday. And I'll be be back here Wednesday-Friday. My colleague across from me has been singing along to the music outside and has said she loves going to karaoke bars.

Interesting way to be winding down the work week...
