My trip is coming to a close and soon I’ll be headed home! We’re due to deliver our project tomorrow afternoon and then I head back to the States on Tuesday morning.
I managed to slip away from working for a few hours on Saturday and wander around Old Town (Gamla Stan). The big churches you see in a few of the pictures were built in the 1200’s! The bulk of the buildings on the little island were build in the 18th century, but that doesn’t seem to stop the Internet nor tacky tourist shops.
I’ve gone a little panorama crazy, if you can’t tell. It’s so much fun and pretty darn easy when you’re shooting digital, anyway. I love the boats in the one up above.
I’m continually amazed at how everything here is so OLD yet still feels so solid and comfy. Many of the buildings are crooked on the outside and look like they’re ready to fall. But, step inside and you’ll find that they have been renovated on the inside and are as modern as can be. I wonder how many of our buildings in Irvine will be around in another 300 years… and still in use?
