sweet peas | luktärter
crazy how yummy these smell. instagram version.
my mom is visiting. she told me that in google translate you can use a listen feature to hear swedish words and that the robot translator's accent is pretty accurate. we decided to test it. we tried my name (quite good) and some swedish tongue twisters. there is one tongue twister that is particularly difficult for non-swedes because it has tons of this sort of german sch sound. in the google robot translation it sounds like whipping, the sounds are said so strong/clear. we were very amused by it.
to hear it, copy the following into the translate field and click on the megaphone/listen icon: seven beautiful nurses took care of seven seasick seamen onboard a sinking ship.
