The linen-county/linlandet...

From a visit to a place called Trolldalen (”the trolls/goblins valley” in English), showing the linen-handling more than 100 years ago. The farmers in this county, Hälsingland, got their wealth from the linen. And they have built very big and beautiful houses paid with the money they got from the linen, called "wooden-castles" (träslott in Swedish).

We took a "fika" (coffee or tea with bread) and during that it started to rain. A small boy enjoyed the rain a lot!! He was so cute!

With this borrowed computer and Internet Explorer I can't edit my blogposts as I should want...

Addition July 19: Now I saw that träslotten are called wooden-castles in English!!!
