Stockholm Blue And Gray

We left the ship Sunday morning, and took a taxi into Stockholm, where we are staying at the very modern-style Sheraton Hotel. Since it was too early to check in, we stored our bags and took a tour bus around town, seeing some beautiful sights, such as the Royal Palace, opera house, and Town Hall. Sometimes the sky looked bright blue and at other moments grey clouds appeared. Since we had never before visited it, we toured the modern art museum. Artists with fine works there included Matisse, Dali, Miro, Munch, and others. After the museum we enjoyed a lavish lunch at the Grand Hotel. It features a marvelous smorgasbord. It brought back fond memories of staying there with my father, back inthe 1980s, on our first trip to Scandinavia. After a rest at the hotel, we visited the amazing "Vasa," a ship sunk in 1628 and only recovered in 1961. Then we toured more of Stockholm by bus before dinner and returning to our hotel. - Dan
