Goteborg walkabout and tramabout, 120614

Sumana gave Advik his food:

And then we went off to see the sights!

The first creature to meet me was this

HOODED CROW:

IMG_0040

Which strutted about as if the world was monochrome:

IMG_0041

Buttercups spangled the grass with shiny gold:

Advik was, of course, happy to be out:

So was his mother!

We took a tram and went past Liseburg Amusement Park:

We saw the Goteborg Museum:

(No point in being indoors on such a glorious day!)

We went to the Asian Store to pick up a few items:

I enjoyed watching the trams, having grown up in a city (Kolkata) where trams still run. Some are wheelchair and stroller-friendly, some are not:

I enjoyed looking at the building facades:

We went to the mouth of the Gothia River, where the Opera House is:

A festooned ship was berthed

near the "Lipstick" building:

IMG_0067

There was kayaking too:

Advik found himself in the hands of the Grand-ma-fia:

IMG_0073

He didn't seem too unhappy, though:

There were Mallards in the water:

IMG_0077

Common Gulls were, well, common:

IMG_0086

As were Herring Gulls:


IMG_0104

and Black-headed Gulls:

IMG_0107

Their tails made such a pretty pattern!
IMG_0108

they were mewling:

IMG_0088

they were bathing:

IMG_0115

They may be common and pests, but they are still beautiful!

IMG_0090

More ornate buildings caught my eye:

IMG_0092

With details:

The Germanic word for travel always cracks me up:

IMG_0093

A nearby mall, Nordstan, was festive:

IMG_0095

Street musicians were "busking":

IMG_0097

Some people's goodness shines out of their eyes:

IMG_0100

the town square was lovely:

IMG_0112

IMG_0116

I saw sea-horses in the air:

IMG_0117

and a man on a horse:

IMG_0118

Jackdaws were at the water's edge:

IMG_0123

There was love in the air:

IMG_0133

Flowers on the ground:

IMG_0135

There were children in the air, too!

IMG_0136

The sky and clouds looked lovely:

IMG_0141

I watched two opponents, frozen in animosity:

IMG_0146

IMG_0147

We passed a beautiful theatre:

A Hummer as a taxi! The ultimate in consumerism:

IMG_0158

Some pretty wildflowers grew by the paths:

IMG_0164

This is for Father's Day, which is today:

IMG_0166


There are wild strawberries in the Vastare's garden:

IMG_0167




That was my first experience of Goteborg (pronounced yothebUri) stad (pronounced shtAt):
