    Take a number, please

    by HORSCHECK Written Apr 10, 2004

    Take a number please

    At most places with customer service (e.g. Post Office, Tourist Information, Money Exchange) you have to take a number from a machine. Then you have to wait for your number to be called or to be shown on the display with the appropriate counter.
    So instead of waiting in a line you are able to browse through other things while waiting for your number to be called.

    Swedish Drinking Songs

    by Confucius Written Apr 9, 2004

    "LAMBO"

    Set nu glaset til den moon

    oh drich ur, deen figh-le hoond
    shoo fadderittan lambo!

    Se hur dropparna ee glasset
    rinner ner ee figh-le aset
    lambo hey, lambo hey
    shoo fadderittan lambo!

    (Translation)
    Take the glass to your lips,
    {chorus} We all drink like herrings!
    and empty it, you drunken dog
    {chorus} We all drink like herrings!

    See how the drops in the glass
    trickle down into the drunken vixen
    {chorus} Like herrings! Like herrings!
    We all drink like herrings!

    Visiting Christian Churches

    by aliante1981 Written Jan 19, 2004

    Christian churches - be they Protestant, Orthodox, or Catholic - are a vital part of Europe’s cultural, artistic, architectural, and religious heritage, and as such you are likely (and I really recommend doing this:)) ) to visit many of them. However, most of them are even today not only major tourist attractions, but also religious sites where people come to pray. This is something to be respected, and here are several pieces of advice I would like to give that might help avoid ill-feeling:

    - Dress modestly, covering shoulders and most part of the legs (women in Orthodox churches might be requested to put on something to cover the head);

    - Do not speak loudly - all the descriptions are better either read in silence or given outside;

    - Try not to walk too much during the service;

    - Avoid using flash in your camera near people you see praying;

    - Respect notes that forbid entrance to some parts of the church that are designated as ‘for prayer only’.

    Following these simple guidelines helped me when I visited, I guess, more than 1000 churches up to date :)))

  • Swedes are always on a first...

    by Mallafri Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Swedes are always on a first name basis and people usually do not appreciate being called Sir or Madame. In many other countries it is seem as common cortesy by young people to address elders this way, but not in Sweden.
    You are expected to give a tip at restaurants and to the taxidriver, although there are usually no hard feelings should you decide not to. But, as in most other countries in the world, leaving a tip shows appreciation for the service provided.
