Baltic (2)

More photos from Visby. Little to report (that is the point of being here). Other than that down by the sea the other day I stumbled across a dead swan, which has to be a doomy Ibsenite symbol for something or other. That the town library of Visby (population 23,000) is superb: fine modern building, cafĂ©, and shelves more generously and intelligently stocked (including books in English) than in any equivalent library I’ve come across in the UK. That I have watched more films (on my laptop) than I have seen in the cinema in the past several years. That I am becoming a monk.
