Ive been in Stockholm for a few days and yesterday we explored the city and people watched. It was really neat to see just how similar and how different things are here. I live in Houston where everyone drives, there really isnt any public transportation and here everyone walks. There are a lot of cars and its easy to find a taxi but a lot of people walk.
The one interesting thing we both observed was just how well behaved the kids are here. There were kids everyone, almost all in strollers even the older ones and they were all well behaved, nothing like children in America. We went to the mall and there were no kids screaming running around, we went to a couple of restaurants and once again I saw nothing but well behaved kids. No screaming. No running around. No whining. It was very different and actually really nice.
Makes me wonder why there are so many ill behaved children in America and yet none here. We have not seen one misbehaving child here, not one.
