All I know about Sweden is that it is one of the Scandinavian countries, the others being Iceland, Norway and Denmark. The Swedish language has close affinity to the English language . Eg: ' No Parking' (English) . In Swedish it is ' No Parkering' . I'm sorry if I've gone wrong . The swedish capital city is Stockholm. I love you SWedes...when there is spare time , keep in touch and tell me more about Sweden by way of a personal message . Thanks and all the very best to you and the entire Swedish community .

I know Swedish are very warm hearted people. The country is located in the heart of Europe, it is a Scandinavian country.My country Uganda has benefitted from the Swedish financial support for many years and many civil society organizations from Sweden are very active in my country, fighting poverty and putting hope in the lives of many desperate people here in Uganda. I have not been there but it is one country i want to visit someday! Thanks for your discussion my friend matte5, I hadnt heard from you for a long time!!
