Welcome to Umeå!

For being a photo blog, there hasn't been many pictures (or much about anything) lately.That's going to change.

This weekend is the big inauguration for the European Capital of Culture where Umeå is one of the two cities, Riga in Latvia is the other one. The main event in Umeå this weekend is called Burning Snow and takes place tomorrow at 17.00. I think it will be something extra.

Something else I'm looking forward to see is the Guitar museum that is opening downtown. I will definitely bring the camera when going there.

If you're an outsider and happens to visit Umeå, don't be afraid to ask a local, people here are nice and friendly. But if you come by car, I wish you good luck finding a parking space downtown. The politicians here haven't played simcity as kids...
