Louis Louis is a cafe at Bondegatan , take bus 3 to the stop Bondegatan and walk down . its on the right and my daugter works there . its unpretensious , Young people use it as a kind of living-room or or lapp-topp-Bureau . but certain times they are not allowed to … why not try a little small-talk out of the box ?
continuing : Backstreets of södermalm
östgötakällare at östgötagatan
today 4 p.m. at the hotel ”at six” there is free Cinema in the Cold open of stockholms air . the film is called ”into the wild” . I will go .
take a bus or subway to Sergels torg . then ”Brunkebergstorg”, I guess lies in the backyards of kulturhuset .
this sunday-event was( is ?) closed down for renovation
many parts of södermalm have kept a functioning urban milieu . from fin de siecle (1900) . small streets, little traffic, shops , cafees , bistros , restaurants, second hand .
just two examples for places to go : TWANG on katharina bangatan 21 . its a hang-out place for the yyoung, little bit boheme , little bit wasted away interieur, life-music sometimes . beerprices 53,- for a big one . books, magazines . good music from the speakers I guess.
take bus 2 to medborgarplatsen , then walk up götgatan towards skanstull . after 500m katharina bangatan goes towards tte left in a 45 degrees angle ( it was a former train-track ) . fotos from TWANG later .
a complete interesting contradiction lies on östgötagatan . ( coming from medborgarplatsen you turn left into folkungagatan, then take the first to the right . ) ÖSTGÖTAKÄLLAREN lies on the left after 50 meters , after schweijk . schweijk is tchek but the beerprices do not correspond well to the poor interior . happily more impressive is the neighboor ÖSTGÖTAKÄLLAREN with its opettere-like interior, with aballustrade , furnitures from the end of 1800, crystal chandeliers and all the crap that the upper middle-class at that time liked. its just marvellous . if you feel like conquering this place with all the white-haired couples there , being a gang of youngsters or old hipsters , yet polite and open , it would really be something . gonna go there with my 70 years old friend lars from södertäle on the next weekend . fotos gonna be following later .
the house of spirits is restaurant Harmonique at Bangkok Charoen Khrung road, soi 34.
I just shopped around tripadviser .
from advising it has become advertising .
and thats great, wish I could be as successfull.
untill the advertised restauranys, hotels and Airlines do draw so much advantage of that that they become less good .
do not go the way of air bnb . it leads to a sick tourism and higher rents for the locals .
bus 1 from stora essinge to frihamnen takes 47 minutes
a jogger takes it 3 minutes faster
nevertheless I d prefer to sit in the bus enjoying the views over the city on water.
not if you really wanna go there …
just wait : 5 – 8.30 pm . ladies : monday and thursday , gentlemen tuesday and friday and sunday . adress svartmannagatan 22
opening times gonna come here
strolling in stockholm you might find something
just as in bangkok
strolling around in the old town of stockholm … you might find something,
sorry , later , got them in me phone
I had a date with me daughter in stockholm. while I was on the way from södertälje . takes 1 and a half our . times are different between bangkok and sweden . in sweden its the geographical distance in bangkok its the traffic jam . I had to hang in stockholm old town cause she got a date. I hung about lion bar with the cheap bear but it was closed . went down to old town. went to the old spooky place which is an old bath. checked the entrance times. went down the stairs. it says ladies to the right and to the left . but gimme a break, entrance times are for man and women ! check that out will you ! the place is magic , costs 60 krowns and if you ever happen to be on right time … go there .
to go to bang kachao:
take bts skytrain to saladaeng.
take out and walk 500m on the walkway on the medium level towards north. find bus 4 towards south. go untill the final destination. walk into the gateway towards wat klong, the tempel by the water thoe. continue towards the river. get a ticket for 10 bhat . move over the river . either its the very tiny boat or its the little bit bigger boat that touches two places on the other side . find M-bike . if its the small boat you will hit it right at the pier . you can rent a bycicle for 6o bhat ; show your passport or give a hotel-adress. you will also get a sketch of the semi-island , which is very usefull because names are in english . the island is a marsh-island, meaning an overfloading area. if not cultivated it is mangrove djungel . a warran may cross your cycle-way . kachao has an island-feeling and the people are much more local minded than the people in bangkok. they do have ecological projects, growing fruit and bycicle tourism. you can find hotels on water.
