Sweden Pining Today, Pictures Tomorrow

I like this Swedish sign.

We're back from Sweden and we're missing many things from our trip--sleeping in, good company, the food.  We stayed with a family of friends and the mother is an excellent cook.  Every day she made us wonderful meals and treats, and I don't think we ever came home from a walk or sightseeing without being greeted with a freshly-baked pie or loaf of bread that we were urged to eat.  Any indication that we might not finish the whole thing resulted in a threat from Monica (the cook) that she would cry if we didn't eat up.

When we arrived back at our flat in Scotland, there were no pies waiting for us, just some smelly cheese in the refrigrator and a giant spider in the bathtub.  We need a mother.

I just want to make a guess that this is a school zone sign before I translate it. I was studying Swedish or Svenska for a while. Let me know how I did!

I think it's just a children-in-the-area sign. There's one on Theresa's street and I don't think there's a school there. I didn't actually look it up, though, so I'm just assuming!

Okay I translated and I got "be wary children cows slowly"

Theresa said...

cows??? Ah, you used an "o" instead of an "ö"! :)
"ö" is a very important letter, completely different from "o". As different as "cows" vs "drive" :) As for "be wary", not sure how that one occurred… (back translation is fun!) :)
