Still exceptionally warm and sunny autumn days made possible some excursions to the nature and special places,like OLD TOWN ( gammla stan and kyrkostaden), situated 12 km from Lulea. The uplifting of the land was the reason of moving the town with its harbour to a new place.
Picturesque as it looks, the transition time, just before the first snow, was a termic shock for our bodies: the wind was blowing and the temperature was just above zero! For the first time we could feel our noses, ears, our faces and hands!The only consolation was hot chocolate waiting for us inside!
That's where we saw our first ice: frozen water on the ground. The first signs of the coming winter!
I was amazed by the artistic beauty of the picture. Dead leaves frozen into the surfice of the water made it into immortalized union of autumn and winter.
Another excursion we were taken by Pia & Fernando was Ormberget. It was my special request to see the view of the town from the hill above ( serpent hill), as I remember it in its summer beauty last year. See:

Another beautiful winter surprise we got in Lulea was the frost-covered plants!
But a tango dancer does not only live on tango and art! WE NEED OUR SALMON! Our thoughts and petitions were inmediated cought by our excellent host and cook, Pia. In spite of that we were out of season, she arranged a BIG PIECE OF SALMON to celebrate the succesful workshops and our second visit in Lulea. Notice the size of the salmon, arranged diagonally on a pan, agains size of the cooker.
Salmon at Pia and Fernando's . Long live the frendship!
