“Travels to a Different Time” : 1July1975: Stockholm, Sweden: No Midnight Shift for Me at the Laundromat

After breakfast a chat with a Brazilian guy who had found a job at a laundromat. He had the address of another laundromat that might have a job so I went to it and waited 10 minutes in the office to speak to the manager who had a job at the night shift. That would screw up a normal life so I declined. I returned home in the Metro and bought some beans, milk and tangerines for lunch. I found a “Time” and read half of it and went into town to people watch on the steps opposite the marketplace. Then off to the other hangout Kulterhuset where you can read and listen to music on earphones. I reserved a 7 p.m. spot. I returned home for a repulsive supper and then headed back to Kulterhuset picking two albums one being “Hot Rats” by Frank Zappa. Came home at 21:00 and in bed half an hour later.
