Central & Stuff....

We had to go into Göteborg Centrum today, so I took my camera along and took some shots and whatnot along the way...


Funky row of houses where I live.




More funky houses.....




Tyson earlier when we went for a walk......




Tyson when we left the trail...




Tyson again....such a cutie looking for a place to piss..lol




Houses not far from here with the weirdest fences I ever seen...



Same houses but from a farther view.....


Silly mailman on his go-cart thinga-ma-jigger....

A building in Central......
and as Paul says...'It's older then the country you come from..'..lol

Crazy road system in Central right next to the harbor.....



Another old as dirt building.....

Uhhmm...Office building next to the 'North Sea' which is the body of water that Göteborg
borders.

A walkway going up a very steep hill.


Side street in central.....

Same steep hill as before, but from a farther view.....

Lots of construction.. office building and a pretty big sailboat in the water next to it....

This is a pic of Gustav Adolf''s Torg, the statue is of Gustav himself, the King who founded Göteborg.

This is taken from the other side of the street from Gustav, it's called Hamngatan, which is part of Central and as you can see, water from the North Sea flows through the city, this is only a few minutes walk from the Harbour.

I was reading the travel section in a paper today and they listed a hotel in Gothenburg as one of the top ten hotels in europe, or something like that. Coincidence that you live there!

I just went and got the paper out of the recycling bin for you!

"Hotel Eggers, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Gothenburg is a port city, from which Swedish emigrants sailed on transatlantic ships to the "New World". Many of them spent their last night in the homeland at Hotel Eggers and, consequently, Swedish americans like to stay there when they visit Sweden to retrace their family roots. During the Russian Revolution, refugees escaping to the West often made Hotel Eggers their first port of call. And, in World War II, German and Allied representatives would meet there for secret negotiations or to exchange prisoners-of-war. The velvet-swathed alcoves of the dining room reflect a slightly conspiratorial atmosphere even now. www.bestwestern.com"

The article is entitled "The magnificent 7 - some of the worlds greatest hotels"
