During my trip to Jakarta, the daily high temperature was, as always, a balmy 33 degrees C (90 F), with occasional rain. In Stockholm, the temperature in the middle of the day ranged from -3 to -10 degrees C (-15 to -27 F), and there was nearly constant snow.
I spent a good portion of my time in Stockholm walking around the city and enjoying the sights. From the snowfall, to the Christmas trees everywhere, to the open-air Christmas markets, Stockholm at this time of year is the epitome of a winter wonderland.
