slussen

most of you probably don’t know about Slussen. (Melanie does. It is difficult to pronounce. Slussen.) It is a run down place in Stockholm, situated between the Baltic sea and lake Mälaren, between Old Town and Södermalm. Slussen has been the topic of public debate for Dog knows how long. Some people want to tear it down, others want to keep it at any cost. It has been neglected for decades, and that the construction still holds together is a small miracle. But it does. It’s not pretty, though. It’s rough. It’s unpleasant.
