    Hello

    My name is Rasmus, 26 years old from Sweden.

    Master Mason (Master of St John) in the Swedish rite, Grand lodge of Sweden (Swedish order of freemasons)

    Mainly intressted in learning more about how freemasonry is practiced in other countries as my own rite is a bit odd by international standard.

    Despite being one, i am no expert on the Shriners. Also have a slightly different experience of it. I'm in Melb Australia where The Shrine is trying to build a presence. That's occurred because some Melbourne Freemasons, who had been initiated into the Shrine in the USA and Canada enjoyed the fraternal and benevolent activities of their Oasis there and wanted to being that here. Some were friends and leaders in that movement so I joined to support them and because i liked the idea of having fun while helping kids and the ability to march publically as freemason as a Shriner.. i've been through an adjusted (and cold sands) ceremony but an American Shriner would be a better bet for info as our Club ( which in itself is atypical) is not the typical Nth American experience.

    For you non-swedes out there, as you can see is the love for acronyms within freemasonry not limitied to the english speaking part of the world. :)
