Sollefteå, Sweden: Twin City of Madison, Mississippi


It looks like I forgot to officially sign up for this month's theme day. In any case, this is a look at Solleftea, Sweden. It is the sister city of Madison, MS which is part of the greater Jackson area and the city where I actually live!

Take a look at some of the other blogs participating in today's theme. I'm sure it will be an interesting voyage from one twin city to another.

PS: Happy Labor Day to all my American visitors.

Well done for tracking down this photograph. It surprises me which cities are twinned with which and how it came about.

I hope you are not getting wet from the Hurricane.

Great photo!

Are you okay with Gustav? I think it should have hit your area by now. . . . You're in my thoughts.

Good to see that you find your official sister city. We had to adopt one for Stockholm but that was fun too!

Thanks to Per for giving me the idea to search Flickr. That's actually where I found this photo. I chose this one because of the Valkommen sign. I assume that means welcome.

Solleftea does look like a nice place to visit. Maybe I'll get there one of these days!

That's right, välkommen means welcome. Swedish is supposed to be a difficult language but at least that part was manageable... ;)

A sign that welcomes visitors is welcome indeed...great gesture. I hope that you can soon visit your sister city to see what's in the photo.
