Oh Say Can You See, When the Sun Rises at 2AM?
While in Sweden, I have gotten used to a certain level of Beauty. There are buildings that look like castles. It’s a little over the top.
This is one of the main school buildings. They call it the King’s building because the King rode his horse up to that turret once. No Big Deal.
The gardening here is pretty incredible. People just love the environment. It seems like a point of national pride that they treat the earth so nicely.
Most of the streets are cobblestone. I’m sure they have to repave less often than we do in Ohio.
This is Lunds Universitet Juridicum’s mock court room. Check out the balls on that gavel!
There are also some things that aren’t as old world that just boggle the mind.
At the local library on the day I arrived, there was a skateboarder – graffiti artist – hip hop party going on. This is far better treatment than the skaters in my town ever got. I have to give this little city kudos.
This is the roof deck on the top of the building I live in. The ocean is about 2 miles away in the direction the camera is pointing. There was some debate about whether we could see it or not.
They have a very cool way of making all the trees look the same. It seems like they basically cut all of the trees to the same height and then whether the trees are young or old, they all look the same. If you look closely, the cross walk is made not by painting over the road, but by placing white marble cobblestones into the road. I was joking that they must have invented the crosswalk centuries ago, but I think cobblestones don’t last all that long.
