Lars-Axel 65, Edsbyn

Crashed my uncle Lars-Axel's 65th birthday party where I got to meet some family members that I have not met in a long time. I have always been told that I look like Lars-Axel but I can't really see the resemblance myself but judge yourself from the picture in upper right corner? Before that I went swimming with my siblings and afterwards in the evening we had a barbecue at my sisters cottage in Alfta.

ABBA concert, Durban

A Swedish band to be proud of when even poor copies can still fill up big concert halls for weeks in far away places such as Durban.

Up with the sun, Durban

In Durban where Heidi is teaching at the universities this week. Glad we got up with the sun this morning to enjoy the lovely sun rise. Despite the early hour surfers were already out facing the waves. There is a film festival happening in town and yesterday evening we went to see Nairobi half life which was quite a good movie for being produced with a low budget.

Ajax CT-Manchester United

Big game in town today so challenged the weather to check it out. Ajax did good and stood up well against one of the best teams in the world. Things got really exciting when Ajax scored with less than 10 min left of the game but as usual the big team got out of it somehow. United did not play the full A-squad, but a least few familiar stars such as Berbatov, Ferdinand, Scholes and Chicharito.

Ever heard of a fog harvester?


Doubt they manage to harvest that much water from it though.

Crazy braai in Somerset West

I took charge over the fire making process which I did really well if I may say it myself. Heidi's  colleague Susanna made some very nice German  Gl├╝hwein. All in all a fun but somewhat crazy evening...
