The weather was excellent, varm and sunny, presenting Stockholm at it´s best. Before lunch we visited Rönnells antikvariat, one of the largest antiquarian bookshops in Stockholm. But their shelves on Esoterica was a disappointment. Surprisingly few titles. We enjoyed a nice stroll in Humlegården, formerly the Royal Fruit Garden but now the home of the National Library of Sweden. Our next stop was the classic restaurant Konstnärsbaren (artist bar). We were served a magnificent lunch and I can really recommend this place to all visitors.

But the second best in coming home to Archives for the Unexplained (AFU) in Norrköping. Especially when we this Tuesday recieved the entire archive of the Spanish group Centro de Estudios Interplanetarios (CEI). This enormous donation consisted of 8 pallets with 93 boxes of books, magazines, UFO reports, artwork and much more. We haven´t had time to unpack much of this collection yet and are looking forward to find many new rare items. AFU is more and more becoming a World Heritage for material on UFO, Fortean and paranormal phenomena.
