Nobel day

Today my brother, Y and I were walking across central Stockholm, seeking out an Asian grocery store, when we found that the entire square in front of the opera house was cordoned off. Police were patrolling the area, and people were standing around taking pictures. Apparently something big was happening, but I had no idea what. Conveniently enough, I was on the phone with my mother at the time, and she promptly told me that we were outside the very building where the Nobel prize ceremony is held.

I jumped on the bandwagon and snapped a photo. Admittedly, there wasn't much to see; I bet it was much more exciting on TV.
