Sweden: Nordic Cities II – Göteborg – A Walkthrough
Published: 19.11.2016
Together we go to Götaplatsen square. The city is very quiet. We encounter almost no one. The rain stopped. However, wind still blowed unpleasantly strong. Slowly we approach an interesting statue. It is a revolver with twisted barrel. It was made by one of the foremost personas of modern Swedish art – the sculptor and painter Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd. This artist lived in the US for a while. In the 1980, the shock of the shooting and consequent death of John Lennon inspired him to create this statue which he calls Non Violence. The original one is situated in front of the OSN HQ in New York. Another clones you can find in Berlin, or in the Swedish cities of Stockholm, Malmö, Lund, and Boras, or in Caen, France and Kirchberg, Luxemburg.

It is 9 p.m. Streets are almost empty yet you are in Tasmania's largest city which is home to almost quarter of million people.

Bolivia – Santa Cruz de la Sierra
Published: 7.11.2016
Santa Cruz de la Sierra is the largest city in Bolivia. It is situated in the central-eastern part of the country far from the Ands. It stretches on flat land. It is remarkable to view the city from bird’s eye perspective. It is of eliptical shape consisting of three bypass circuits (anillos). These are interconnected by radiales – main roads to which are given numbers clockwise. There are 27 of them. The city looks rather like a large village for its low buildings and quite life. There are, however, several more expensive streets with luxury goods. Nobody is in hurry in this city. Locals like to sit on benches and rest. Wristwatch seems like a decoration than a useful accessory here.
