Linköping, Sweden

I have arrived, finally after a 38 hour trip in Linköping, Sweden (map). This will be my base for the next few months during another assignment for work in this northern European country.
Linköping is about 200km south west of Stockholm and about one third of the way from Stockholm to Copenhagen. There are about 100,000 people in Linköping with a large hi-tech industry including where they make Saab fighter jets, also with a very large university.

Sweden is just coming to the end of its winter, and unlike last year in Stockholm, this year there is plenty of snow and ice.

Here is one of the main parks in the town as I walked through it returning to my apartment from the city centre.

A high point in the park overlooking the town.
