There was just enough time after the end of the enlarged Presidency meeting and before the beginning of our formal dinner for a quick stroll and to taste some beer. We found a friendly place on the Riksgatan, quite close to the Royal Palace where, as the picture shows, the Vice-President, Anna Maria Darmanin, and I sampled the local lager (and very good it was too). We have been lucky so far with the weather. The locals tell us that June was a rotten month, full of rain. Today has been sunny, but it is still cold enough in the evening for the bars and caf├ęs to leave blankets on the chairs for those customers who chose to sit outside.
