"The Truth The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth"
Plus gossips, rumors, lies and pure fiction


just a short message to let you know that I did survive Mexico
and are back in Stockholm sorting out my life.
At the moment I am working as a consultant to the Swedish Army,
Marine Defense, while starting up my own company.
I'll let you know what's happening as soon as I know! :-)

Otherwise things are as usual - cold, snowy and dark.

Hokans Top Five List

1) Cigars
Never in my life I thought I would say this, but cigars
have improved my quality of life considerably this year!
Now I am saving up to my first Humidor! :-)

2) Mexico
Despite Topes(*), pollution, Traffic and corruption this
place is something extra special! I love it.
When driving you really get the feeling that you're a
perfect mix of Niki Lauda and a jet fighter pilot!

3) Heroes del Silencio
A Spanish rock group which I have re-discovered. As I
hardly can understand Spanish I haven't got a clue what
they sing about, but it's great anyway!

4) Michelada
Lime, salt, more lime, Corona or Dos Equis and more lime.
Add ice and sit back and relax. Preferably on a beach.
After my recent Mexico trip I am now known as Mr. Michelada.
Then there is the "proper" version with Tabasco etc, making
Michelada become more of a "Beer Bloody Mary", which is not
bad either. Try it...

5) Brooklyn
Now the Swedish Systembolaget has three different flavors
of the Brooklyn beer family. I never had a beer quite like
this, and I still love it.

Famous Last Words:

"Why yes honey, I do think you look fat in that dress."
"Excuse me, I'm a tourist, and I'm lost."
"What duck?"
"These are the good kind of mushrooms."
"I can do that with my eyes closed."
"Now watch this."
"Nice doggie."

Until next time,

Have a great one, or as my hero Mr. Stefan Krook would say:
"Give gas and have fun"


(*) Topes are road bumps that is every where and on every street
to make people drive slower. No-one is the other alike, and
if you are the slightest sick or need to urgently visit the
bathroom, they are hell. But Mexico would just not be the same
without them.

Won't you take me   back?
