It’s Cold on the Mountaintop!

Åsa’s comment

I get that a lot! “You must be good with the cold!” But Swedish houses are really well-insulated, and we run the heater all the time, so it’s pretty warm inside. I think winter’s colder in Japan! But I’m not good with hot weather, either. My Swedish background sure isn’t doing me any favors!
