To jean113: statue

Thank you Jean,
There is a story behind that statue which I didn't bother to describe in the note. It was made in 1907 by a nationally famous sculptor and placed in a different place in this area....

To emka: people

Thank you Malgo,
The people are in the WS. But this is actually quite "far away", so there weren't a lot of people around.
Have a nice Sunday.

To adramad: art

Thank you Luis,
I have vague ideas about the functioning of a 3D printer, but as far as I understand every little detail of the product to be printed is decided by the artist/engineer. The printer...

To ifege: rings/buoys

Thank you Ian,
I would also have called them 'life buoys', but maybe the artists had a limited knowledge of English, or they thought 'buoys' would be too hard to pronounce for the Swedish public....

Hello Bev,
Thank you very much for adding this to your favourites. I like it too, but on my way to look at the monument I was hoping for so much more, so I was slightly disappointed. I went back the...

To jmdias: john

Thank you Jorge,
John is active on Twitter, posting photos probably more often than he ever did on TE. I guess he just got tired of this site. I am not on Twitter, but Malgo told me.
Best regards,...

Thank you Jean for also looking at the WS photos. I will keep it in mind to return here when the restoration is finished. But it is probably even more than 5 minutes away from where I live. ;-)

Sounds great. Turkish food is usually very good, I would say among the best in the world, but places like this could turn out to be tourist traps. I hope not in this case.
