... at their summerhome in Björkvik to do a few maintenance jobs this week. They invited us to come down for a night or two to see their special little piece of paradise.
We took the train from Stockholm Central to Katrineholm, about an hour's journey. They met us at the station, 20 minutes from their sommarstuga.

The exchange association had arranged a city tour for the exchange students, and we all broke off into groups and were shown around Karlstad while learning a bit about its history.

We started the following day with a walking tour of Löa, we saw the Blast Furnace where men from the village used to make iron from the 1500 - 1900's. It has been restored to what it was ...
