I spent my last evening in Sweden with my cousin Lasse and his family. Another cousin, Nisse arrived too with one of his off-spring, and we had a delicious dinner and a great evening . Lasse married Cissi, a Stockholm heiress (and physician). These two are the most unpretentious and modest people I know. They seem totally devoid of interest in worldly goods. They could, if they could only be bothered, live in some style on the top floor of a large nineteenth century house with breathtaking views over the bay but instead they have built a modest house at the bottom of the garden. They never go shopping for any furniture or house hold goods, they just go to the large house and rummage about until they find whatever they need in the apparently unchartered supplies.
