2005 AUSS Singing Tour to Sweden
July 9. Värmland sightseeing
Mårbacka, home of the first Nobel laureate of literature, Selma Lagerlöf.
Rottneros Park. This manor house was the setting for Selma Lagerlöf's Ekeby in Gösta Berling's Saga.
Rottneros Park. The lower statue in the middle of the picture is of Prins Gustaf, composer of the well-known song "Studentsång" which is sung in Sweden at graduation time. The AUSS sings it, too.
A tree hugger? No, but Don feels a strong attachment to this tree which he witnessed getting planted in 1978 in Rottneros Park.
