Post-film funny walks

May 1st is Labour Day in Sweden. It's a national holiday here and we were luckily granted with amazing sunshine and fair weather.

Miriam, Christopher, Mira (who took the great photo above) and I went and saw the 40's classic "Swing it, Magistern!" at the Stockholm Cinemathéque. We are all great fans of the movie’s shining star Alice ”Babs” Nilsson who was a famous jazz singer in the mid-1900s. It is a fabulous little film, made in 1940, and despite having seen it before, there were so many new things to notice ranging from amazing clothes to fun and quick dialogue. If you get a chance, go watch it! It really is a darling little gem in Swedish film history of the Swing era.

After the film we walked the avenue down in a silly manner, as one is prone to do.

What did you do on Labour Day?
