The Wrecks of Stockholm

There are not too many capitals in the world where you can have a wreckdive in the city centre. Local divers in Stockholm say they have more wrecks in their waters than ships on the surface - and according to estimates every seventh citizen has a yacht or a boat. The most famous of all Stockholm wrecks is of course Vasa. The Swedish warship turned over and sank on her maiden voyage after sailing less than a mile in 1628. It was salvaged in 1961 and now can be admired in a museum. But the majority of Stockholm's wrecks are still under the waters of the Baltic Sea and Lake Mälaren.

    Filip (as archeologists named him) died trying to turn the ship into the wind so that she could right herself. (He was around 30 but two of his front milk teeth remained in his lower jaw.)

Meanwhile in Weimar

On 23/12/2011 Hungarian police broke up a demonstration by green liberal opposition MPs who chained themselves together outside parliament to protest against what they believe is a demolition of democracy. You can read more on the story and the background here and here.
