Two posts on the same day! Not a usual habit of mine, but I thought I´d post this fresh on the right day.
It´s the first of May today, and in Stockholm the International Worker´s day is celebrated with several street demonstrations organized by the political parties to the left. I took a bike ride through town, passing by three different demonstrations. It must be a logistic nightmare for the people who draw the maps for these marches - they all take place simultaneously, and they all want to be close to the city center. The whole town is like a huge street festival with orchestras, drums, red flags, demonstration signs and people shouting, singing, marching.
I sat on a little doorstep on Kungsgatan drawing this while the Social Democratic party marched by.
