    Yeah you have a point, Sweden used to be this neutral country, which started in WW2. Sweden was like one of the first country to have an embassy in North Korea (they still stole the trucks we sold them) and a lot of examples like this. Its rather normalizing now and Sweden is taking a stance on things, like the Nato membership etc..

    Wait are you matching this to the political chart? I'm not, I'm going solely by the ABBA one (Swed music charts) but it sounds like they might show same thing after all. Your normalizing seems to also be pretty much around same period as Mamma Mia..

    Will probably need to go in March for some industry exhibitions. Hangzhou and maybe Shanghai in May.

    China is on the bucket list still but not for 2023.
    Have you never been to China despite living here for more than a decade? You can now get from Central to Shenzhen in an hour with the East Rail Line.

    I met HK locals who lived their whole life in HK and never entered Mainland.

    Will go to Mainland in summer or autumn, Shanghai, Hangzhou etc.

    What about Macao? Is it possible now to do a daytrip from HK?
