Sweden: Stockholm Syndrome

3 Dec
2015

Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors.”

I mean…Stockholm did not keep us captive or anything but I GET IT because the minute we set foot in Old Town, Stockholm, I was hooked. It is magic. Cobblestone streets and lights in all the windows and people shopping and drinking coffee in cafes and buildings older than the United States. Glorious! If they closed the airport and said, “You’re staying here now,” I’d probably just shrug and say, “Awesome.”

We happened upon a Christmas market, where I tried pickled fish. It tasted good. Because I have to file everything new in relation to something I know, it reminded me of Seattle. Fishy and good!

Then we took a midnight train to anywhere…or an evening double decker bus to Norrt√§lje.
