Dinner with Annika and Olle

We were invited over for dinner Friday night, and had a wonderful evening. In addition to his carpentry skills, Olle is also a great cook. (Annika says he can sew, too; what a guy.)

The evening started with a turn in the steam sauna. At 55°C and 75% humidity, it was amazing how quickly and profusely we all started to perspire. Olle even had some birch branches with which we smacked ourselves, so we had the full experience. After we showered, we had drinks, and Annika shared with us a book she'd made of the history of their house.

Then it was on to dinner, the centerpiece being a pair of fish Olle had caught earlier in the day, prepared to a recipe of his sister's. Besides the local fish, we had home-grown potatoes and herbs grown in the backyard. It was all delicious, and we had a superb evening.
