Anneli – 60th birthday party

Our friend Anneli Berg turned 60 in mid May and invited friends and family to a party on a houseboat at the Gothenburg waterfront. The weather was splendid and the food plenty. Late in the afternoon, Anneli had arranged an amphibian vehicle (a rebuilt Volvo buss) to pick us up and take us a tour around the harbour of Gothenburg. This was great fun, specially the splash when the buss drove into the water. However, the younger kids found it a bit scary, and perhaps some of the dogs onboard, too. We got to know Anneli through dogs when I moved to Gothenburg with Collies in 2010. By coincidence, Anneli happens to be from Jämtland and her mother lives on the edge of the Lockne meteorite crater, which Erik and colleague Jens Ormö have been studying since 1994. Small world!
