My younger brother made it to the finals of a harp contest in Israel last weekend. The finals itself will take place tomorrow in Jerusalem. He was blogging about the results so far, but the news about the finals only made it to me via email (in duplication, my mother enthusiastically emailed the news a little earlier). Being proud of him I thought I should mention it here. I had a plan of maybe going to Jerusalem to see the finals but a seminar from work combined with steep ticket prices prevents me.
Myself I went to Stockholm last weekend. (I currently work from the Opera Software Linköping office, in Sweden.) Arjan and I forked over SEK 1000 for the best food we ever tasted in a restaurant: GQ restaurang. Highly recommended and definitely worth every krona. We will very likely return at some point.
