I did a little too much driving today. We finally got away from the house at ten thirty or so and headed down to Carl Larsson’s house.  From Bollnas it’s a little west then a long hour and a half drive through endless forests down to Falun, then left through more forests to the small town of Sundborn.  The entire town revolves around Carl Larsson with shops selling anything and everything with his name on it.

The house truly is beautiful fantastic and the artist really put a lot into it. We all wanted to photograph the inside, but that was not allowed.  Duncan did manage to get a couple of grainy iphone pictures while inside, but nothing of any true quality.

The house has been hand painted with portraits on most doors, ceilings and walls; a work of art to live in.

Afterwards it was another long drive down to the airport outside of Stockholm; there I dropped them off at the hotel.  They have an early flight down to Paris tomorrow and there was no way I was going to get up at three in the morning to shuttle them and hour and a half from Östhammar
