Somewhere over Skåne
On a sunny May day a few years ago, a conversation was overheard between a pilot (nationality unknown) and a Swedish air steward approaching Malmö airport.
Pilot: "What are those yellow fields below us?"
Steward: "They're probably rape fields."
Pilot: "Oh, you have special fields for that in Sweden?"
(Note to all Swedes: It's often better to say ‘rape-seed’)
