An interesting June weekend in beautiful Stockholm. After two years of covid break, another meeting of Cleary Gottlieb alumni. Discussions about the world today from a global perspective and many local ones. Also lots of sightseeing, from the U.S. Ambassador’s residence in historic Villa Åkerlund – thanks to H.E. Erik Ramanathan and Alumnus Ranesh Ramanathan for their hospitality – to an individual trip to the UNESCO-listed Skogskyrkogården forest cemetery, with Greta Garbo’s grave. A few dozen steps up its Meditation Hill – high at first, then lower and lower, as in life.
