50 years ago


I'm off to Sweden again for about a week. Going to meet my school class friends to celebrate the 50 years since our "studentexamen" (baccalauréat in French). This was the name of the university entrance verbal and oral examination in Sweden from the 17th century until 1968. It was the final exam from the "gymnasium". Today only the name remains for the completion of the secondary school, based exclusively on grades from cumulative courses.

The photo was taken April 16, 1962. (I hope you don't recognize me.) 


There will be some preprogrammed posts during my absence.

Bon voyage et bon 50 ans !
Même en agrandissant la photo j'ai du mal à te reconnaitre même au fond le troisème de la gauche. J'ai la vue très basse tu sais.

Hi, Peter,

I will be contacting you when we arrive in Paris, April 18, hopefully able to connect after your return on the 19th and before we leave on the 28th. We will be away the weekend of the 20th, at least Saturday, maybe Sunday.

If I can't connect by email, I will leave a message at your agency.

Looking forward -- I hope it will work out. (And I have NO idea who you are in the photo but I hope you're having a fine time!)

I hopped over from Denise's blog. It's quite different to see people dancing in the the street.
