“Travels to a Different Time” : 27June1975: Finally in Stockholm: This Country is Too Expensive!

Up early for a barely edible breakfast and hit the highway after yet another gruelling walk. Got a lift quickly with a fat and jolly truck driver from Germany who was driving in Sweden making good money at $120 a day. Finally a series of lifts to get me into Stockholm and found a dive for the absurdly expensive price of $4.50. This country is so expensive I think a job might help build up the cash. In bed exhausted at 11:30. Too tired to eat. My smoking career has ended as I lost my tobacco on the road.
