    (prises sous tous les angles; il faut vraiment etre un touriste de base pour prendre ce genre de photos…).

    Hope everything is fine.
    Here in Östersund the festival week is going in to the bigger part.
    They have started to put fence around the city
    and tomorrow the big party starts.

    You know…it´s always a bed in the house…whenever…!

    Big Hug…..Micke
