So this will most likely be the last post of the kinderwagon in action. It has been so useful as a multi-tasking machine. Not sure little, little felt the same way, though.
Back in Stockholm, and as planned we paid a visit to the Stockholm City Library, designed by Gunnar Asplund. We rode past this library when we here here in August (see Day 404, August 23, 2009) but it was too nice of a day to go inside. Today, it is cold, dark and snowy. Ideal […]
With a rented sled for little, little we headed down into the valley and followed one of the cross country ski trails that traversed along a stream. There were a lot of recreationists out but plenty of space on the paths for all of us. Afterwards we decompressed with the help of the indoor pool […]

Innerschweizer Meisterschaft: Squash tournament in Kriens. I lost in the semi-finals to someone more than 20 years my junior. Ah, to have young legs again.

We rode the cogwheel train both directions because the cable cars were being serviced and the line was nonoperational. It’s amazing […]
From the billboard collection. Business must be good, Ali has the gold pinky finger ring now. Not to mention the 747.
