The coolest thing ever. 6-year old B-Girl Terra totally annihilates the competition.

I turned 30 a week back and celebrated it together with friends and family in Kvevlax. It’s getting too dark outside. 80% of the pictures were blurry, so there’s really not that much to see…

I hardly had time to talk to everyone and even less to take pictures. There was, however, a whole series of pictures of Stefan and Andreas but that was when I was trying out the flash and I don’t think they’d like me to show any of them 🙂

But I had a great evening thanks to all the wonderful people who was there and thanks to my parents who spent the whole evening in the kitchen. You can see my mother as the blurry figure in the first picture.

I attended my first board meeting of INYRMF in Münster, Germany. Spent the whole Friday in the city, together with this wonderful group of people.


We had a guided tour of the city. It had been completely rebuilt after WWII but was still modeled after the old street plan, as can be seen by comparing an old drawing with the current google map image.




In the evening there was a hot air balloon festival and we were lucky enough to have dinner in a garden close by.

Big thanks to Frank and his family for inviting us to their home and also to Ruth for organizing the program!

My creative cousin (who arranged the flee-market a few weeks back) organized an America inspired party. As the US has existed for quite some time already the possibilities when playing dress-up seemed endless. And at the party you found everyone from indians and cowboys to Ozzy and a recent Olympic gold medalist.

The hostess.

Dolly Parton’s boobs got a lot of attention.

Another handsome pair was my aunt Eivor and her husband Olle.

I came as an indian.

And ended up getting shot by a very cute cowboy.

But the prize for best dressed went to my aunt Maj-Britt as the Statue of Liberty and her husband Gunder as Steve Jobs.

Peter Pan

One of the perks of summer is all of the outdoor theaters popping up all over the countryside. This summer, my cousin Lotta’s daughter Amanda was performing in Peter Pan as one of the Lost Boys (or in this case Lost Girls). And of course we had to go and see it.

Here’s a large part of my extended family seated. My mother and two of my aunts are the one looking in my direction.

The cast. Amanda is 7th from the left.

It was especially fun to watch the reactions of the younger audience. They really got into the sword fights although the more dramatic parts might have been a tad bit scary as several of them had to ask if the actors were truly dead.

The rest of the week was spent reenacting the play.

Here is an uncharacteristically quiet Edith as Tinker Bell.

Levi as Peter Pan. Who just got rid of his training wheels!

Alvar as the undefeated crocodile.

And Arne as the very evil Captain Hook.

My vacation started off in a wonderful way as my cousin Anna-Stina was organizing a flee market in her yard! I didn’t get a picture of her but here are some other happy salespersons.

And I found some great things! A gorilla, enough magazines to last the three weeks I’ll be in Österbotten and a pepper shaker, which can be read “full of pep” or in Swedish “ugly and chirping”.
