Life in the Land of the Ice and Snow

By Heather Jonasson

Heather and her expat friends discuss their experiences and humiliations among their adopted country of Sweden. We discuss tips, observations, and the type of important questions expats want to know, such as "Why are there witches on Easter?", "Why do Swedes never take the last piece of candy?" and "Where can I find decent Tex-Mex food?"
