This post is a part of the writing project called Stories from the West that I started with Christa. We’re both currently living on the west coasts (Christa in the US, me in Sweden), hence the name of the project. We both want to share our experiences living as immigrants, and every month we’ll write a post each with the same topic. The topic for this month is ‘summer‘. Don’t forget to read Christa’s post, Summer Activities.
This is my second summer in Sweden, and I don’t know what to expect.
Last year we had an extremely rare hot summer which stretched for 3 months, with way more sunny days than the rainy ones. It was glorious (but also scary because the climate crisis felt truly real for the first time). I wrote a little bit about the early days of summer last year, and a recap at the end.
