The Swedish Embassy

The Swedish embassy

Sweden it isn’t just meatballs and flat-pack furniture

The stunning Swedish stereotype is as old as time itself. They’re tall, slim, blonde and sex mad… the science of why Swedish women are the sexiest in the world. Well that was true for certain boys in Padstow as they were growing up.

During the late 60’s and early 70’s at a certain time of year (usually summer) Padstow used to be visited by a group of travelling Swedish Girl students, there might have been Boys but I don’t remember. They tended to be all blonde-haired and blue-eyed with happy smiling faces that made a 13-year-old boy think of much more than action man and football.

The students used to all congregate in and around the Brown shelter which  us local boys named  …… The Swedish Embassy.
