New passengers arriving

at Sickla station. Why are they here? Maybe to fill their bags at the mall, maybe they just live in the vicinity? Who knows? A lot of questions....

Bottom Up!

Two swans eating in Lake Mälaren!
Picture taken two weeks ago in Hässelby, there is not so much to say about this but the ice gone from larger bays and it is spring time.

the sickla connection

Three kilometers from Slussen along the Saltsjöbanan rail line we find Sickla station. We have arrived in Nacka Municipality.

more shopping tomorrow

Arguably, quite a few shops and malls are rather vacated these days. In fairness, this interior from the mall Solna centrum was snapped a few minutes before closing time. 120 shops and restaurants, open seven days a week. The current, glazed-in version of the mall in Solna by architect Ivar Krepp was opened twenty years ago.

bagarmossen - 19 meters under

Bagarmossen ("Baker's Bog") subway station was moved (or rather reconstructed) in 1994. The earlier station was situated above ground.

The national football arena could do with a major face lift. Or preferably a major replacement.

Meet Toothgrinder and Toothgnasher

A fearsome closeup of the two rams in front of Thors wagon. I'm glad they are not able to stomp me for real. Read the rest of the story here.

ice sailing

It's fun to see ice boats ("isjakt" in Swedish) sailing. They are very fast and can easily reach 100 km/h with the world record over 150 mph (240 km/h). Picture taken outside Berghamns Brygga in Lake Mälaren.


All we need for colour is a lonesome fire hydrant at Näckrosen subway station

The system is down

I'm aware of the fact that not all of you have received mail from Charlie Root. No! Not from Charlie Henry Root (the famous Cubs Baseball player who was named "the all-time Cubs right-hander" the same year as UNIX was born at Bell Laboratories 1969) but maybe from the UNIX kernel which carries the same name when sending E-mail. Picture taken at Kärsön in Lake Mälaren.
