I bet some tourists are busy writing postcards (or is it SMS these days?) complaining about rain and then you post this for us. The week can’t be all that bad, can it? Lovely sight!

Also, check out this report (in Swedish but my, those pictures...) from The Castle Gardener.

I think this is the Mexican three masted brig Cuauhtémoc (apologies if not). When she sailed into Stockholm all seamen were saluting in a traditional way standing on the rigging (see this photo from the daily Dagens Nyheter). Over 100 vessels in different classes are participating.
