Gott nytt år!

Armed with a thermos of hot chocolate, we watched the professional fireworks (at 5pm) from the Götaälvbron (a bridge over the river).



I'm glad we walked there and avoided the traffic chaos after the show.

Ameteur fireworks are legal and encouraged here, and the ones you can buy at any of the home improvement / hardware stores are serious stuff. The whole neighborhood was a constant explosion from about 10pm-1am in a fashion that made the 4th of July look like a funeral. The last of the loud music (and louder Swedes) vanished at about 6am. This picture is from our livingroom window.
