Chapter Summary

When the author finds a lace doily, she and her husband are reminded of a day almost forty years ago when they were living in Germany. While driving from Stockholm to Oslo, they hardly saw any cars or people. Finally, they spotted what appeared to be a village, where they stayed the night at a bar that also catered a bed and breakfast. As the author and her family did not have Swedish currency, they offered the bar owner German money, but owner liked the lacquer soup bowls and accepted the bowl and a pair of chopsticks as payment for their night stay. They used the bedroom and left early morning without breakfast, but they had stayed the night for almost nothing. The landlord of the small bed and breakfast also gave them a souvenir: the blue lace doily.
