Passing Through

Some of you may have noticed I ride a lot of trains. Not only have I done so but with my new job I will be on even more trains. I like trains (good thing too). Train stations, however, tend to be rather boring. Today I came across an interesting exception.

My journey from Kalmar to Lund included a 20 minute stop in Alvesta. Not really enough time for sightseeing but enough for a brief look at the station house. To my surprise not only was the station house a rather grand building on its own it also included a micro exhibition on Carl von Linneaus and a second hand bookshop.

What can I say – I almost missed the connecting train…
