Tomorrow is my grandma’s birthday, and that is actually the reason why we’re going to Rome. The thing is that she doesn’t even know we’re going away, it’s going to be a surprise! We’re going to congratulate her tomorrow morning in a classic Swedish manner, and one of the gifts she gets will be a note saying that she should pack her bags, since she’s going on a trip with all of us. She won’t know that the destination is Rome until we’re at the airport, although she might guess it before then.
And that’s not all. Today she’s been complaining a bit that her son,who lives in Saint Petersburg, not being present on her birthday. The thing is that when we arrive in Rome, he’ll already be there waiting to celebrate her.
I’ve been to surprise parties before, but none of them has had anything on this one!
