In the beginning of March, my body started to itch. I had to get out of Stockholm. I know how it feels to not be able to breathe, because I have pollen allergies and astma, and they clog my lungs every year. If the catastrophe was to happen, I need to be with my family in Kiruna. The earth feels closer to me up north. That’s where I want to be in case of a crisis. The prime minister says on the radio that it’s common sense not to travel from Stockholm.
