Personal Space

Swedes need space

A lot of Space

This is when you know that a Swedish bus stop is full

And that you need to stand

 

What happen if you sit in the middle?

One of these can well stand up and take a step aside

To maintain a comfortable distance between each other

But what if you look different

Or wear religious symbols

How easy would it be for you to believe

That people go away from you

Because of the color of your skin

Or your religion

It has nothing to do with that

Swedes simply need space

We all see the world through cultural glasses

This picture illustrate the whole thing pretty well
