Running away from my thesis, I caught the train going for Gävle, a small town located in north of Uppsala. Gavle is famous for having goat monument in December.
This goat, which is made of straw, is considered to be the biggest in the world. What is surprisingly funny about this goat is that people are trying to fire it every year. The goat has been burned down on numerous occasions over the years. It has also been torn apart, and in 1979 it was rammed by a greaser driving a classic American car.
And to my sadness, this goat has been already burned down. There was nothing in the part where this burned goat was supposed to be. I could see some of grass which is burned into black. But people walking around the street seemed to pay no attention to it.
Although it was unfortunate for me, I found it interesting to walk around this small town. There is Gavle River running through center of town. It reminded me of the atomospher of Chambrige, a old university town in Brtitain.
I walked and saw a lot of scenary spots along this river. One of the spots I really reccomend you to see is “the five genuine stature” made by Carl Milles, who is one of the most famous swedish sculptures.
I thought it would be much better to visit here in summer. How wonderful it will be to be lying in the grass along the river. I am sure that I will come back in Gavie in summer.
