Favorite cheese: Sergei doesn’t have a favorite but he likes Herrgårdsost (a semi-hard Swedish cheese made from cow’s milk)

MY FIRST POSTCARD FROM SWEDEN!!!!! 🙂 Sergei in Lund, Sweden sent me this beautiful Art Nouveau card. It’s a poster for the Cloetta company that makes chocolate and other goodies. I just love the postmark but the woman’s eyes on the stamp are rather creepy! 🙂
