My only actual Swedish Midsommar in 1983 (sadly) involved no debauchery. Started out early AM on a Linjeflyg flight from Stockholm to Kalix in the north (I was living in Redondo Beach, CA at the time and somehow the SAS ticket agent thought that was my name so I flew as ‘Mr Redondo’), followed by an outdoor late dinner with about 20 Swedes in Lulea. The host family tried to have me eat a Swedish flatbread burrito containing onion, potato, dill, and the most rancid fish you have ever smelled in your life — surstroming — sour herring. My friends mercifully intervened before the first bite. That lovely evening was followed by a four-day roadtrip through the north of Finland, Norway, and Sweden in a ‘68 Volvo Amazon (which had the world’s largest steering wheel). Unforgettable trip!
