On a happy day like New Year it is perhaps not usual to think on such dreadful past as the Holodomor. But one of my wishes for the new year is that at least Sweden will accept Holodomor as genocide. (A pervious posing in Swedish about this).
Igår hade den svenska Luciatraditionen en miniturné i Lviv. Två företag med svenska ägare, Remit och Brainglass, hade vänligheten att bjuda in studenter som läser svenska vid Ivan franko universitetet.
Vi hoppas att detta kan bli en tradition i Lviv, att våra studenter får tillfälle att komma ut och möta företagare i Lviv med svensk anknytning.

Sedan blev det lussekatter, glögg och pepparkakor.
A couple of weeks ago I visited Kraków. This was my first visit in several years. During my last time I visit to Kraków I also visited Auschwitz. This effected of course my mood, but I also believe Poland has changed… a lot! Walking around in beautiful Kraków you can feel a certain atmosphere that you can’t feel anywhere else in Europe right now, and that is the atmosphere of success. From perhaps being the greyest country in Europe, Poland is today the most prospering one, and you can feel it. I am afraid though, that my pictures below is not completely fair to Kraków. My decision to use b/w film has nothing to do with Kraków, but late autumn. Late autumn is in itself b/w.
I have to say that Poland, Polish and Poles and awakened a curiosity in me, and I will certainly be back soon! With some more language skills.
