Theatres on trains - Art in subways

Stockholm, Sweden

We really needed to think of a good way to get out of Are, Sweden. It was closing down fast. We missed the cable car to the mountaintop by one day, and the great restaurant we wanted to return to was closed, too. The sauna was great, but we were ready for something different.
Since the trip from Stockholm to Are was ten long hours by train, we decided to take an overnight train back. Wow! That was wonderful. We three got our own cabin with three bunks on a side, and didn't have to worry about strangers sharing our sleeping quarters. I wrote about a bizarre trip by train where we didn't have a private cabin in my book "Bunk With a Drunk" on www.talestogo.com. Anyway, this train has a movie theater that was showing a movie for $10. Instead, I crawled into my little private bunk and slept the whole night. There were eleven stops, and I kept waking up when the train stopped, but I was comfortable, and when the train started up again, I fell asleep like a baby in a cradle.
When the train stopped, it let us keep sleeping until 6:30A.M, when an alarm went off and we had to leave. Then we took the subway to our new hotel, since the hotel we had stayed in previously was booked solid. Although there aren't many people around, Sweden's rooms and restaurants are full. Each area of the subway is decorated by a different artist. This area looked like ancient Greece. Another had a Viking theme. There was one section that looked like a cave. Another looked like graffiti, but not the rude and random stuff. The Stockholm subway is worth its own tour. Anyway, that is how we got to the beautiful Harbor district of Stockholm. Really nice.
