Today’s Daily Create [ @ds106dc #tdc3348] is to drive through a city and write a one sentence travelogue. The Drive and Listen site lets you choose cities where a video drives you through that city, and you can choose to listen to the local radio and the street noise.
I chose Stockholm, Sweden since Glascow, Scotland wasn’t listed. My ancestors are from Sweden, and this would be a great way to see the place some of my relatives may live. I listened to the street noise and not the radio, and I watched both videos — one from a very early spring before the trees began to bud and one during a heavy snowfall. I took these notes:
rectangular block buildings
some glass building extensions
repair on old building
winter, no leaves on trees, but no one is wearing heavy coats
public buses and bus stops
old city with old buildings kept up nicely
Ramlosa— carbonated spring water
cobblestone rumble streets
really clean streets except for one box by the trash cans.
lots of bicycles parked
streets covered; plowed
people bundled up warm
some with boots, some with out
snow steadily falls
cars covered in snow so fresh.Drive and Listen site
Yes! A 7-11!
My Travelogue on the Stockholm Drive-Through:
Stockholm, Sweden, an old city of many 6-7 story old buildings and newer block and glass styled ones, all well kept with clean streets bustling with joggers, shoppers, bicyclists traveling through the traffic signs and signals, and in winter a heavy snowfall can suddenly dump its heavy, wet whiteness across the cars and streets but people are still out and about, walking and driving to the local 7-11.
