Rebecka is a fellow landscape architecture student that I met last year when she came to the school I go to on exchange. We had some amazing times involving pickled eggs, nachos, and Joe Montana. I really wish Rebecka was still here in Vancouver, but now I have a good reason to visit Sweden. These photos give me about 12 new reasons to want to go there, too. Let's take a look-see...
On my bike. Malmö. Sweden.
I’m happy to share my morning bike ride, through my city, with you. It’s one of the highlights of my day, moving, passing and thinking, time dimensions intertwined. The 20 minutes bike ride always takes longer. This is what I see…
First, the horrifying view of the demolition of the landmark and Scandinavia’s largest Ferris wheel, one of the few chances to get a view over my flat city. It’s a great loss for the city and its people. I’ve been observing the dismantling and people who observe the dismantling.
The historical city center, the large squares, the statues of fat men on horses and hordes of biking people, all that I have to pass. Later the waterfront, a place that once consisted of one of the world’s largest dock for constructing ships, now a university and polished offices. My office, together with flourishing cultural expressions, like last summer with an extravagant dance show. And all the restaurants have pictures of the old industrial site.
At last the dreaming view that sometimes makes it hard to concentrate on office related tasks. It changes constantly, weather and enormous boats. 9 h to Finland, announced with loud speakers that fills the entire harbor.
The city moves. So do I.
Thank you Rebecka for sharing these beautiful photos and you were brave to ride that bike I lent you! Check out Rebecka's blog AB synth industries, too. And, please, come back to Canada soon! Next week's guest post will be from Melanie of Kittenrocket. Check back!
