The Henley Reggata. We gotta go again next year.

My Swede’s colleague arranged for us to join him at the annual Henley Regatta. What a treat. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Ladies who Bollywood dance

Our last ladies lunch of the season was super fun because instead of our usual fireside chat where someone talks at us, we actually participated while we learned something.

Bollywood dance lessons

Sadly Aman, our local Bollywood teacher will be leaving us this month, back to India and on to new adventures. But I will never forget her and hopefully not my Bollywood moves either.

When I realized my mobile telephone was dead I was so disappointed because I couldn’t take photos of the allotment. Everything we planted is coming up and we can eat the lettuces and spinach. Se we took some home.

Yay!

Swedish midsommar DC style

My friends has us over for dinner on midsummer and surprised us with Aquavit daiquiris made with a bottle we had given them ages ago (I don’t blame them for still having it. It is an acquired taste). Who knew you could made daiquiris with aquavit?Swedish margharita 20140620_174555 PaperArtist_2014-06-24_18-41-10

Followed b regional fave: softshell crabs! It was my Swyede’s first time enjoying the delicacy. So while we didn’t have a leafed pole, flowers in our hair or dance the frog dance, we did celebrate midsommar the best way I know how: with good drinks, food and friends.
