The view from my window, looking East across Tranebergsund to Kungsholmen and Lilla Essingen in Stockholm. night and day versions.

The final picture is one of Bollhustäppan (Boy gazing at the moon) a tiny statue on Gamla Stan in the very centre of Stockholm. You will need to seek it out yourself, the fun is in finding it. I am trying hard to recall why it is here. If I remember correctly it is associated with the suffering of Russian Children, very poiniant.

P.S. Every winter someone knits it a little jacket to wear to keep out the cold. Yesterday it had a little bonnet on tied under the chin.

it's funny how that works

tortilla flats is now an industrial area where a mall stands today near a car mall, taco bell, and a gold's gym among other common things

cannery row is a bunch of tourist shops and restaurants and a way to bleed money out of the tourists

only kalisa, queen of cannery row, still has a shop there and the city saved some of the chinese fishermen's dwellings nearby

i have been fascinated by your geographical area...besides a short jr high visit to dc, maryland, and virginia, i have not been to the east coast

i would like to see nyc, new jersey, rhode island, and connecticut because of all the history and culture there...my wife is from that neck of the woods and doesn't want to move back but talks about missing the availability of world class food, culture, and the four seasons...she does not miss the hectic pace of the region and the crime of certain urban centers

Its Funny you mention that because I just started reading Tortilla Flat today. It is sad to hear that area is built up, but being such a big region, I hope there are still large amounts of land that are untouched.

I have always been facsinated with the Pacific coast (specifically Washington, Oregon, and Northern California), but I have never been west past Chicago.

I would tell you that there is nothing to miss over here, but I may have a biased view since I've been here all my life and am in need of a geographical change (or at least a vacation.) There are some nice places in New England, but I would love to visit the Redwoods or the Sierra Nevedas (to name a few) and see what the west has to offer.

thats what i was thinking along with how did he build it up there?. the only conclusion that i have come up with was that the tree has gown a lot since it was built. Hehe
Trees dont grow that way. Its sorta the thin bits at the top that grow longer and thicker, not the stem that "elevates" out of the ground. If you build a treehouse at 8 feet, it will stay at 8 feet.

When we built it,we used ladders and climbing accessories.
Especcially the painting part was hard..

Not yet...
We are all decent climber and once you are inside you're safe.
We have ofcouse some climing acessories inside to ensure our guests comes safe up.

We had a party up there a year ago, never again
(nothing happened, but it was a bit stupid..)

Anyway, its nice place to have a date.. :D
