It looks like the world we lost. Cafes and restaurants full, people relaxed, no face masks, no panic. I have to say, honestly, I’m glad I’m here… in comparison with what I’m watching my family go through in the U.S. I would say they’re pretty much hands off here in Sweden, as opposed to hands on. You feel safer here than you would back home? Oh definitely. So I’m kind of proud the way we’ve handled it. Sweden kept most of its schools and businesses open. It asked people to socially distance. Half of Swedes live alone anyway. It banned large gatherings, but imposed few other rules. As for Sweden’s buses and trains, well, take a look at this… not a face mask in sight. The government doesn’t recommend them and Swedes follow expert advice.
