  It has been a busy week!  Wednesday we had a midsummer party at IIASA, thrown by the Scandinavian YSSPers (therefore "midsommar").  It was a great party.  We had more than our fair share of beautiful midsommar maidens:

 We had a seemingly endless supply of ice-cold snaps (i.e. schnapps) served by handsome Scandinavian lads:

  We had a steadfast organizer who apparently lost her voice from shouting at us so much:

  We had, I don't know, at least 50 or 60 attendees I think:

  We had a traditional midsommar tree:

  Which was danced around in the traditional (ridiculously silly) fashion:

  We had lots of yummy food, including pickled herring and meatballs (not shown) and grilled sausages:

  We even had fabulous prizes; behold the happy winner of some moose-shaped pasta:

  It doesn't get much better than that.  And a good time was had by all:
