Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Photo of the Day Saturday 8th September 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day….” It is better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.”

Up to Sweden for the photo today, and to the Swedish capital, Stockholm.   The population is around 825 000 people, of which about 85% work in the service industry.  The photo shows part of the Gamla Stan, or Old Town, which is on one of the 14 islands that make up the city centre.  The Gamla Stan is made up of narrow medieval streets and alleys, the narrowest (Mårten Trotzigs gränd ) is only 90cm wide.  The Gamla Stan was original surrounded by a city wall, but this has long since gone.   Now the streets are filled by tourists instead.
