There were two major events in Stockholm last where Americans and Swedes came together to watch the US Presidential Election results come in. Combined there were well over 1,000 people in attendance.

Other than Barack Obama’s historic and decisive victory, here are the highlights from the Democrats Abroad Sweden Election Watch Party at the Scandic Anglais Hotel in Stockholm (9pm-6am) organized by Zebra STHLM Communication and moderated by Emalee Mandl and Annika Jankell ; and the American Chamber of Commerce/US Embassy Election Breakfast at the Hilton Slussen (4.30am-8am).
