The Carousel could usually be found at the Christmas Market at Gustav Adolfs torg in Malmö, Sweden. This picture was taken  an afternoon on my way from work with a digital camera. To see a picture of the same carousel  in the beginning of the 21st century look here.

Sakura walk along Yamazaki river in Nagoya

dsc_0699

A treasured memory from my first journey to visit my son who lived there at the time. The day after I arrived in the beginning of april 2013 he took me on a walk along Yamazaki River to look at the famous flowering Sakura trees. Lot of people walked along the canal to celebrate the hanami season when the cherry trees blossom. The picture has been published on one of my other blogs.
