This is the community I was living in. It's a small rural village called "Harlev", 15 km away from the center of Aarhus.
Even though I always had to drive into the city, I liked it very much there. It was quiet, and the air was crisp and fresh.
My car in front of the building in which my "student apartment" was located.

Aaboboulevarden in the center of Aarhus. This is a first result of a remarkable city development project: They dug out

with Nick and Gerlinde in the streets of Tonder, where we attended Tonder Folk Festival. I returned to that festival on
my own one year later and saw my favorite band "Capercaillie" play live. On my way back, my car was searched by German customs. Borders suck.
Can't wait to get rid of them. It was also the night Princess Diana died. Publicity sucks as well, one might add.

No matter which season of the year,
northern European light never loses its magic.
