The city still known as a textile/fashion and shopping centre, its inhabitants are also still said to always be on the lookout for a cheap deal.
It is also supposed to be the rainiest city in Sweden.
Today we seemed to live up to both reputations, because how else do you explain so many people queuing in the square on a rainy day to get a piece of free birthday cake.
A true Boråsian knows how to handle an umbrella and a piece of free cake at the same time. And if you’re also a blogger, you know how to handle an umbrella, a piece of cake, and a camera… (The answer is: Go and stand under a roof outside a shop while you take the photo.)
As for my ongoing diet, please note that
1/ I had salad at home before I went out,
2/ there were strawberries on the cake, and
3/ free calories don’t count (what? do they?? oh no!)
