I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

One little problem

This red squirrel wasn't part one of the official attractions, but it had obviously figured out that looking cute in the picnic areas was an easy way to score cookies and fruit from children.

Of which there were oh so many. I had foolishly thought that if I went to Skansen on a weekday in September there wouldn't be many children there, maybe a few toddlers with stay at home parents, and some tourists, but it was apparently Let's Go to Skansen! day at every school in the greater Stockholm area, and maybe parts of Finland as well.

I usually love to be around kids, but there haven't been so many scary blond children in one location since the casting call for Village of the Damned. Now I know why all the concession stands sold beer and wine. And why all the adults were drinking at eleven o'clock in the morning.
