Swedish Fika for Me

Next week I am doing a whirlwind day of events at Bladins International School in Malmo* in Sweden.  I am trying to memorise the important words and phrases, such as Thank You, Where is Bladins? and I am allergic to pepper (the seasoning).**  But I am already fluent in the most important word of all - fika.  Coffee and cake and chat.  What more do you need, to make the world a better place?


* I don't know how to show umlauts, so you'll just have to imagine them in the appropriate places.
** Tack, Var ar Bladins, Jag ar allergisk mot peppar.  Goggle translate never lies, right?
