    This vacation is certainly getting more ambitious by the day…couple days ago I learned that by Oct. I will have my EU Citizenship (!!), and ever since then I’ve been thinking about the possibility of getting a job in Norway.

    Wouldn’t that be something? Ha ha.

    I’ve been talking to Christine about coming with me and we even spoke to the Norwegian consulate in New York…seems that if she gets a job offer letter she can easily get a Seasonal Worker’s visa. Oh geez…that would be so much fun if her and I worked up there. We would literally imerse ourselves in a new culture…new language.

    I don’t know..I guess we will see how it all plays out.

    Today was a rather uneventful day…however, I spoke to my good friend Peter, a swede, and he so kindly taught me some Swedish words.

    Hej = Hello

    Hur mar du? = How are you?

    Ja/Nej = Yes/No

    Hej da = Goodbye

    He also taught me a couple other words…but yeah, that’s pretty much the gist of things.

    On a completely different but same subject oriented topic:

    I am trying like crazy to get my Spanish citizenship (E.U. passport = freedom) so I don’t have to deal with the Schengen Visa (Peru is about the only country in the world that needs a visa…ugh). I have been e-mailing the consulate in Los Angeles but to be honest, it seems like I might not be getting my passport in time due to the fact that my father (who is the one appealing to gain the citizenship there) has to request a bunch of documents from Leon, Spain and Lima, Peru. Sigh.

    Let’s hope for the best.

    I’m really exicted about our trip. We’ve decided on July 2nd as a tentative date.
    I’m especially excited about seeing Sweden! Something about its culture and history really attract me to it.

    Of course, it goes without saying, that there is really a lot more that appeals to me than just it’s history (ie. clubs, nightlife, bars), so I can’t really make my mind up about what to do first when we are there.

    Any ideas?
