Kash Kronor

Sweden is in the process of rolling out new currency and while the old banknotes were truly beautiful, I am wild about the new ones, featuring some of Sweden's cultural treasures, half of whom are female! You may have heard of Greta Garbo? Ingmar Bergman? These are just a couple of the creative faces that are gracing our new bills. And, arguably the most beloved Swede, and certainly one of the most internationally recognized (if not her, certainly her creation, Pippi Longstocking) of the past few generations, Astrid Lindgren. These are like art to me and it's almost a shame to spend them. I'll have to try to use my bank card as much as possible to avoid the regret of having to part with these beauties.
