Summer Night City (9)

The World Trade Center by Klarabergsviadukten claims to be the world’s meeting place. Sort of a contradiction since there are about 300 similar centres around the world. It’s the next-door neighbour of our Central Station in the very heart of the city. Or, as they put it, only 20 minutes from the airport. It’s all a matter of perspective,
I suppose. Been here before.

Very beautiful, as made of gold.

I flew MAS from Kuala Lumpur to Newark, via Stockholm. We only stayed in the airport for 2 hours for refuel but based on what I see at the airport, Stockholm looks quite beautiful.

I saw some advertisements for a high speed train from the airport to downtown Stockholm in 20 minutes.

That road sign in the foreground is sort of irritating but otherwise I agree, Lena. I like this one.

Oh Ming(tm), how could you leave us after two hours!? ;) Well I’m glad you’re back safe and sound from that long trip of yours. And you’re right about that high speed train connection; it takes twenty minutes and is quite popular but has been criticized for being excessively expensive. A one-way ticket costs roughly 30 USD.

Thanks, both, for commenting.

Your comment about the "best in" type claims made me smile. We have fun over here with labels such as "biggest stained glass window in the world, with a profile of a calico cat in a church with oak pews painted black". There's superlative in everything.

Thanks for the comment on my grey photo. I rather like that one too, though as a city blog post, it doesn't convey too much information.

And wouldn't you, just a teensy bit, like to remove the road sign using Photoshop? :-)

And among of those superlatives there has to be one which is the most “superlativeous” of them all, right Z?

Apparently I was able to resist the 'shopping' temptation but if the sign had blocked the view of “my” blue sky, who knows what might have happened… ;)
