Valborg

It was our first Valborg in Uppsala and we got to see things!

It began with watching the ships float down the river. Funny and risky fir the ones sitting in the boats. Very popular for the people around: streets that usually are empty were crowded.

We ate silllunch with some friends in a traditional way, with a studentcompany in a very old building. The lunch was full of songs and observing traditions, pretty new for us and interesting.

Then, we all marched to the university to hear a men choir sing welcome to the spring we were far from alone, it was people all over the place.

The sun shined the whole time and made it really lovely. Next year, I think I want to make it last longer and continue during the evening. We went home but the city was still all alive and happy.
