Celebrating unity

Fish and chips, vindaloo and chicken tikka masala, topped off with fudge and a nice cup of free tea. The perfect Friday evening thanks to the international food fair that has taken over our little town for a few days. They were even selling Marmite!

Timber built

On the train south last week, stopped at Lightvalley.

Did the same coming back five days later.

But this time the woodpile's lower.

Another timber building a bit further north:

When april with his sweet showers...

On the last day of April, Spring is traditionally "sung in", here in Sweden. A male voice choir stood on the steps of the old artillery regiment yesterday evening and braved the last of the April showers. It started with hail and then turned into heavy snowfall with a biting wind that caught up the black party tent to the left of the choir and blew it into them. None of which stopped these valiant Vikings from giving it their all from the first song below to the final song in the link.
