I smell fish!
At the square in Angelholm
Salutations and greetings from sunny Osby nestled in the forests of southern Sverige! The team headed out this morning from Angelholm (sorry, I'm not on a Swedish computer anymore, so I can't do the special Swedish characters....imagine two dots above the A there, please!) and had a lovely stopover in Klippan for a tour of a printing company, Ljungbergs Trycker, and a lunch/tour at Dymollans smokehouse. AKA "Eels on Wheels."
Turns out the Eels on Wheels trucks are no match for Shana and myself! I should've trusted my gut instinct and kept a safe distance from the tanks...who know what lurked in those murky depths!?
No, we all played it cool, adopting the "suck it up/try it" philosphy once more. We tiptoed through the eely water into the tank area, where our guide proceeded to take out an eel and......yeah, I don't know what he really did next. We were too busy darting away, Shana and I, kicking up eel water in our wake, heading for safer, drier, greener... less eely pastures in the fresh air....far away from tanks and buckets loaded with those slithery slimies. We made it safely to an eely oasis of a parking lot where
we preferred to keep a safe distance. Whew.
Onward to the Church of St Petri, a church like none other I've seen, which is so infused with spirtuality, we were all in awe. It was a very interesting tour of a church not even 50 years old. Its exterior bears no resemblance to a church, but the subtleties of the interior instilled a sense of peace and comfort. Lit by only candles and windows, it still radiated warmth.
We're now onto host family number six, past the halfway point now. In the quaint town of Osby, Carol and I were ushered out to the countryside to a small farm with horses, cats, and sheep. Not too much time though because the evening marked another presentation for the Stupendous Six...and a fine performance it was. Once again, we were overcome with the warmth and generosity of the Rotary community. And of course, another fine dessert!
Tomorrow we're off to the toy factory, BRIO, and a travel agency and an evening with our host families. There are rumors of a canoe outing this weekend.....and all I can think is.... "Watch out for the eels!!!!!!"
Thanks for checking in,
Like no other
