My City - Short Ver.

Västerås. With its 130.000 inhabitants it's the fifth largest city in Sweden. And this is my home.
I've lived in many cities in Sweden. Västerås, Uppsala, Eskilstuna, Kalmar, and some more not really worth mentioning, but I always come back to Västerås. I don't know why, but it's like every time I try to escape, it pulls me back in. In a good way. This is why I'd like to share it with you.

I'm lazy tho, so I'll just share a couple of pics instead. You can Wikipedia the rest.

You see that tall building to the right? Partially hidden behind the bushes. That's "Skrapan". Or "The sky skraper" in english. It's our only building with more than 24 floors. If you've seen that you've seen anything worth seeing in Västerås really.

And this is our highway. The only real way in or out of our city. Deserted. Now you might say: "But Cray, you're obviously just using pictures from deserted city Pripyat's high way and labeling it as your own." This could be the case, but no, this is actually the highway going through Sweden fifth largest city. If you look closely you can even see a car in the distance.

Well, this post turned out quite differently than I had originally imagined. I do like love my city, and I feel like I'm a part of it, but at the same time it makes me depressed as hell.

Oh well, at least it's not as bad as Eskilstuna. Seriously, don't go there, that place is fucked up.


  1. i envision an internet without words. the images and videos can speak for themselves. i am merely a conduit for these things i have seen and collected. but, you know, to each his own. thanks for the input.

  2. with a population of 130,000 I must agree that your town looks quite deserted. I would kill to visit Sweden though! I have heard it is a very beautiful country!

  3. It's kinda like finland, but better. No real reason to go here thought. If you want to see a cold country with communism, go to russia.

  4. God, I'm really not happy with this post. Might just end up deleting it. Or perhaps I'll just leave it here as a reminder on how not to write.

    It's like one of those school essays where you have to come up wirh something, but you really just don't care, so you just fill up the page with words until you finally give up. And I don't want my blog to feel like boring work.

  5. why don't you put soma pictures of the landscape? :)

  6. You live in such a big town and there is only one real skyscraper? My home town has only half of the population but at least 30 of them.

  7. Wow! I didn't know you lived in Sweden.
