Answer to last week: Okay, so it was pretty obvious those are skis, but not so obvious that they are for an airplane:

Cykling i Haga

We rode to Haga this morning and got some pumpkins at the farmers market. They're a little runty but they'll do.

Answer to last week: That was the sound of the slate roof tiles 'clapping' in the wind. We climbed to the top of this building, the Powder Tower, and that is what it sounded like from inside.

Gula hjul

What do you do if you already have one of the ugliest Volvos ever made? Paint your wheels yellow, of course. Then it'll be just a tad uglier.

Before and After

What better way to spend a Saturday evening than sitting on a brand new garage floor complete with in-floor heating, inside a brand new garage, with Belgian beer in hand?

I hope Claes enjoyed that while it lasted, because the very next day his garage looked like this:
after.jpg

We didn't spend the whole weekend helping Claes, Elisabeth and Tim move into their new house. Leo managed to carve out some quality reading time:

And Tim proved how big and strong he is getting by pushing me around:

What the...

One evening there was a bunch of cops in full riot gear in the Old Town Square in Prague. We decided it would be better not to stick around to see what was going on, and we still don't know.

Also, Leo posted more Prague pictures here.

More Prague

One of the highlights of the city is definitely the architecture...

...although some of it was a bit strange. Who thinks of putting giant babies crawling up the sides of a structure? And who approves and funds that idea?

Here is a nice view of all the bridges over the River Vltava:
