Nu är det sommar, nu skiner solen…

[gallery] Summer is here, and soon it will be time for us to gather in the north woods at Sjölunden! I hope everyone had a wonderful Midsommar celebration. I was at the American Swedish Institute and saw several staff and villagers there. People sure are getting excited about coming up to Sjölunden to work on their Swedish this summer! Did you know that there's a new building at our site? Gamla Uppsala is the latest cabin to be added to Sjölunden. I'll be living there this summer, and am excited to make the new Swedish site my home. I'm also looking forward to living next door to the girls of Visby! Goda grannar!  Check out the pictures of the new cabin. Looking for ways to brush up on your Swedish? Have you checked out all the TV shows available on I also recommend P3 Svea- a radio station dedicated to music by young Swedish artists. You can stream it online for free at Vi ses! Magda
