“Travels to a Different Time” : 2July1975: Stockholm, Sweden: Too Many Winos and Police

Up at 07:00 thinking I would go to student employment office but gave up on that idea. Went back to sleep feeling like bugs were crawling all over me. Scratching and itching! I am into my austerity programme so today I will eat one meal only. I will go to the smorgasbord at Hotel Rydberg at 53 Drotting. I went to Kulterhuset to listen to a record which was very good. The two German guys I met were on the steps outside when I was leaving. So they came to Hotel Rydberg and ate daintily while I stuffed myself. No gourmet delight but it fills the stomach. We waddled out and I headed home at a slow pace. I had my last hot shower in Stockholm and planned my next stop. Then went into town and stopped at a park and counted 19 winos in a tiny park. They are all over the place and there are so many police! Home to bed early as on road tomorrow with the Germans.
