Stockholm’s Old Town

Stockholm's Old Town

Stockholm, Sweden’s Old Town (Gamla stan) was too crowded this past Sunday afternoon. Once the rain began, the tourists cleared out, and it became a very lovely place.

My random, desktop image of the day features 祭家, an 居酒屋 I previously mentioned here.

Copenhagen living

Today’s photo is of the neighborhood just to the north of my place in Copenhagen last summer. I found the streets to be quite charming. At dinner time children could be seen playing in the streets while parents drank in the sun at picnic tables in their front yards.

Upon doing a little research I found out that the area (also called Farimagsgade) was built in the 19th Century. All of the houses are fewer stories than what you find closer to the city center. It was thought that no one would want to live so “far” from work in central Copenhagen when these were first built. Now, with Copenhagen’s biking system, these are some of the closest residences to central Copenhagen in which owners don’t have to walk up dozens of stairs and have other people living above and/or below them.

Originally, two or three families lived in each house. Now, only single families live in each unit. I’m guessing the prices are very high, and the cars parked out front attested to the wealth of the residents.

All things move in order in the city.
