On Thursday, Catherine had a morning meeting in Uppsala and then the rest of the day free as Maundy Thursday is a half day off. So I took the train down to Uppsala and we spent the afternoon exploring the city a little bit. While Uppsala isn’t a particularly large city, compared to Gävle it felt like a trip to civilization after being out in the woods for a month. The number of people out and about and the number of options available for anything was a nice change. We’ll definitely go back later this spring or summer and spend a day or tow hiking to the Viking burial mounds and checking out some other sites. Here are a few pictures.
