Boras Riviera

 

A section of the city centre known, with Swedish irony, as the riviera.  Actually, in the summertime, with people eating outdoors and the sunshine, it could be somewhere southerly!

It looks very agreeable Tom, a good place to wander around..
Tom Wilson: A pleasant place, Chris - my back was to the city park when I took this shot.
I wonder if there are even fewer people there right now, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Probably not, Ginnie - there are no confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the city so far.

I m surprised not to see more seats, Tom
Tom Wilson: My back was to the city park in this shot - plenty of seats there, and in the warmer weather there are lots of tables and chair in front of the restaurants, with people eating out.

I like the red coloured roofs of Scandinavia.

I love the copper roofs in the back, Tom. This looks like a pleasant city to be in... not too crowded.
Tom Wilson: Yes, the developers seem to have favoured copper for the new buildings. Borås is a small city - about 65,000 people in the main urban area and a total of 121,000 - so it is very manageable. And with a budge to about 573 million Euro - it isn't poor smile That's more than twice as much per head of population as Sheffield is able to spend!
What is that strange yellow creation Tom?
Tom Wilson: A bit of modern sculpture, Bill - Borås has a biennial sculpture festival and usually one or more the exhibits is bought by the city.
Looks very pleasant, Tom........I do like the reflections smile
Tom Wilson: It's a nice little city.
Some nice colour captured here.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Care.
This is rather a nice area.
Tom Wilson: It's a very pleasant place all round, Brian.
