About half an hour by bike from the place where I stay there is a popular residential area, built over the last 20 years, called Hammarby Sjöstad. There are 11.000 apartments – homes for about 25.000 people. The district is situated close to the waterfront, and it seems like the architects managed to provide nearly all the buildings with a spectacular view from the large windows and balconies.
A wooden pavement is placed around the lake, where a circle-shaped terrace makes it possible to watch the many birds, or sunbathe when weather permits. Here is a link where the district can be seen from above.
When I came there just before sunset, some weeks ago, it looked like a flying saucer had landed. Ailsa’s travel Theme of the week is Round.
