A wonderful day in Sweden.

Took my SLK for a drive today. First I drove 180 miles to Lund in southern part of Sweden, for having a MB dealer make the annual service.

On the return trip, I drove 200 miles on the back roads trough the country side, with the top down. Wonderful day with 30 degC and sun, and marvelous roads.

Sure sounds like a Fun Trip 30 Grad in Sweden also feels better than 30 Grad in Arizona during the Monson Season.

It sure was a nice day. I'm in Linköping, 250 miles northeast of Lund, and the evening was pretty here too:
