Work day can start as early as 6h00 if one wishes e.g. so that one can leave work at 14h00 to pick up kids. At least, the company that I worked for was like that. The following collection of pictures were taken over the course of the same day.
It was the fight of the Nordic titans over which chef can open oysters the fastest… 16 contestants, 1 victor. Well, actually, I was just drinking bubbles and eating a lot while they worked hard. LOL. Despite sounding a bit ‘petty’, it was a serious annual event held by the West Sweden tourism board.
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou is more lovely… Well, it was glorious weather… if 3 degrees did not bother me. Welcome to the pristine Sweden! More precisely, Köpstadsö island. This island had 100 permanent residents and ZERO cars. The only wheels found on the island were wheelbarrows. Yup, this place really exists.
Boras, Sweden, was once a busting textile city. Think factories. Well, now that the labour is too expensive, textile industry became a distant history for Sweden. I’ve worked in the clothing / apparel business for over a decade now. To me, the museum had a very personally touch to it. There’s honestly nothing glamourous about the making of apparel, but it is an important industry that creates thousand of jobs (factories, shops and offices). The museum has a great touch to put things in perspective.
