Near my home there is a narrow inlet from the Baltic, called Svindersviken. Almost every morning before breakfast I take a walk along it. Another being which also feels at home there is this one. A few days ago was the first time I saw it keeping still and not flying away when I came. Are we getting friends?

World´s longest book stall

leave a comment »

Once a year, since 25 years, under the auspices of the municipal board for culture. The Drottninggatan street is crowded normally, and this day (August 16) very very crowded. Around 1 km length of second hand book sellers as well as literary societies, publishing companies, and a few writers trading their own work.

Double walking sticks

When I got trekking poles some years ago, I started looking for any accessory that would enable you to carry the poles and have your hands free when riding a bus, walking into a shop and such. I found nothing, so I tried to manage with constructions of my own. Some kind of strap was the idea.
Stavgehäng

Now however another solution appears. Poles that can be folded and unfolded, still keeping the correct length that you have adjusted. I haven’t tried them yet. Seem promising though.

Some daily commuters and me, just a wanderer, gather to embark this old steamer which has got a new life as part of the public transport around Stockholm.

Since I am a singer in male choirs, it’s fun to listen to other choirs. This is “Stockholms studentsångare”, academic male choir of Stockholm, directed by Pelle Olofson, performing traditional songs in the courtyard of the Royal Palace on our national day.

I was out of green tea, so I went to JFK for a supply.

Our Sakura Day is in a week. We keep hope!
