Smiling Cecilia Kallin! :) Sweet!
Nobody but nobody can smile as often when she speaks and with as much appeal as talented and vivacious lead singer and guitarist Cecilia Kallin of Timoteij.
Does it really matter what Cecilia was asked about here at the Helmia car show in Arvika?
She's such a charmer! :)
After they sang a few songs, http://www.youtube.com/watch?
and had finished signing autographs at the record signing, Cecilia and Bodil, separately, were among a number of passengers in a rally car driven by 22-year old Swedish professional rally driver Pontus Tidemand, which resulted in some great photos of him, Cecilia and the band -and a very smart and well-produced video that's definitely worth checking out.

Above, you can see a truly striking-looking Bodil getting into the car at 1:15 and then the whole band from 1:31 to 1:38, with Cecilia happy and clearly relieved to be standing on her own two feet again and Bodil looking calm and cool.
From 2:08 to 2:15, Bodil is recounting the experience to Elina, standing next to her, sipping a drink.
There's a great photo of a smiling-but-nervous and helmeted Cecilia in the rally car on her blog page on the group's website at http://www.timoteij.se/2013/04/22/det-svanger-om-arvika/
where she admits that for at least part of the ride, she had her hands directly in front of her face and was peering thru her fingers, while, not surprisingly, 'driving' and 'braking' with her feet.
Here's the photo of her and the band on Pontus' wonderful website and Instagram account:

On Saturday the band will be performing in Cecilia's hometown of Falkirk, so I'm sure she will be snapping lots of photos that will soon be appearing on the band's always amusing blog and her Instagram page at http://www.timoteij.se/ and http://statigr.am/ceciliakallin
