We came to Sweden to work.

Only two months is left before parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change meet in Warsaw to try to deliver the Doha mandate on addressing loss and damage due to the adverse effect of climate change.

And we have to catch up on the lost session in Bonn [no thanks to Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia].

It's amazing how 2 days of informal talks can accomplish compared to 2 weeks of formal negotiations.

I think we did well in Sweden.

It was thus with happy feet and a good night sleep that I went out of the castle gates.

The small town was embraced by fog and still sleeping.

I was hoping to get a church.

But perhaps, some other time.

Maybe further out the gates.

In Stockholm. 

In an ancient place called Gamla Stan...
