Drove past it in the middle of the night last December and had to stop for some photos smile.gif

And on the subject of sculptures - how do you like the one at the Strömpilen roundabout? Nasty innit?

It's not a lake though, it's umeälven on a calm day. That last photo is stunning.

It's exciting exploring somewhere new especially when everywhere you turn there is something even more gorgeous to see... and Mzungu ..I love snow.. so bring the cold on!
The cold makes:
My chai tea taste even better
The mashmellows in my hot choc taste even fluffier
Bbqs something special!
Snuggling even more cosier!

Have you checked out Kont? Really pretty there! By the way, was it you that was wondering where you could get hold of ingredients for oriental food? Check out the kiosk on Pedagoggränd, Ålidhem.

Off for a walk round Nydala - so pretty on the east side...

it looks beautiful but there is alot of amazing looking places in skåne too for me the most beautiful is the clean air you breath and the wholesome of the land it kind of feels pure and virgin untouched by the building mass of money making highrises... laugh.gif laugh.gif

This link is for Mzungu.. found you another!

Thanks for the great feedback.. its just nice to have something positive on this site instead of all the bitching and whining... I think any place is what you make it!

Borlänge-alex: I'm not sure what you mean..they are called the Instant Kiwi Adverts.. pretty old now but still just as funny!

Loke: It was me looking for oriental/asian food.. found a couple small places so all is good! Hope you enjoyed your walk biggrin.gif

You know we should start up a link where everyone can send in their own photos and great things about where tey live!
