I biked through the summer landscape today and it was like biking through the epitome of the idea of Swedish summer. Red cottages with white trims, pastures, horses, flowers… The dream of returning to the simple life, to the origins, to that little red cottage on the countryside is one of the corner stones in the traditional Swedish self image. Simple solitude with neighbours not too far away, but not too close either. Second biggest country in Europe after France – when it comes to space, but with a population of nine millions, so there is plenty of room for fulfilling that dream of ours – the dream of the little red cottage and the simple, free life.
