Hi all — Long time no post.
Things are rolling along; my legal name change is supposed to occur this week, as well as a possible last trip to my general practitioner.
While I’m waiting for the wheels to turn, I thought I might introduce you to the area of Stockholm where I’ll be living: Årsta (pronounced OAR-shta).
Årsta is considered a district within the city of Stockholm. According to Mimi, it’s a great location for commuting downtown, which is about 30 minutes by train. Årsta has several shops, stores, and community services in the area, and most people live in condos.
This is the building Mimi’s condo is in:
There’s a small shopping/community center just a few blocks away:
Bibliotek = Library :)
And just down the street is the grocery, the name of which is easy for me to remember since it’s so similar to our “IGA” stores:
One of the more significant landmarks is the Årsta Bridge:
Mimi was kind enough to plant small icons on a Google map of Stockholm. If you click on each marker icon it will indicate on the map of the five main locations you might be interested in: her condo in Årsta, her office in Södermalm, Gamla Stan (Old Town), Downtown Stockholm/Sergels Torg, and Central Station.
(I’m learning that older browsers may not be showing the little “blue drop” icons, sorry)
