Kaknäs Djurkyrkogård

The Kaknäs pet cemetery got its start when the dog Nero - companion to the author August Blanche (1811-1868) - was moved from his original burial place to this site near the water on the eastern edge of Gärdet. This reinterment touched the hearts of many in Stockholm when it happened, and people started burying their own beloved pets near Nero's grave, and so did the pet cemetery come to be.

Blue and White Anemone Duet

I try to visit Hansta at least twice in the spring - once for the blue anemone hepaticas as they pop up through the barren forest floor, and once for the wood anemones as they cover the forest floor in a carpet of white flowers. This year, they were both in bloom when I arrived for my second visit.

Corona Photo

The Covid-19 pandemic has created a whole new genre for me. Going to places nearby - because I avoid public transit, and avoiding people - because of Covid-19, I'm exploring nearby spots as they have become eerily empty of people.

April 7, 2017

On the afternoon of April 7, 2017, an islamist terrorist hijacked a truck and drove it down the pedestrian street Drottninggatan, killing five and seriously injuring 14. I wasn't there when it happened, although I had been nearby earlier. The whole inner city was shut down and closed off, so when I went to meet my cousin I had to walk - along with many others - out to Wenner-Gren Center.

Siena Cathedral

Siena Cathedral, or Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption as its full name is, was built between 1215 and 1263 - which for a cathedral is very fast as these usualy take 100+ years to finish. The city council saw this and saw that it was good. Then the city council decided "to put Siena on the map" and other PR-consulting tropes from the year 1300, and committed to expand it to the largest cathedral in the region. The construction soon turned into a nightmare: the money ran out before even one tenth of the job was done, what was done was of sub-standard quality - and to top it off the plague struck. From the abandoned, half-finished marble walls that today frame a parking lot we learn that municipal politics haven't changed in 700 years.
