The Ukulele Man

The Ukulele Man

Look What I Caught!

Just a day after I met Adam and Annie at this bench that overlooks Lower Lake Rudan I met Jesper there, and I think he had seen them as well. We chatted away for quite a while. At the moment, Jesper, who has lived in Haninge for around five years is flipping burgers at McDonald's, but he has a very interesting dream. Eighteen months ago he bought his first ukulele. He has always been interested in music and with the ukulele that interest grew. Now he is hoping to travel around Europe and pay for the trip by busking! That sounds like quite a challenge. As we sat there talking about photography, music and fishing, one of the anglers (Russian or Polish), got lucky and caught a fish so I walked over and snapped a few photos of that.

This is fun, I enjoy seeing who you got a picture of and learning a little about them.

Du skämtar?! Finns det öring i Rudan? (ellervaree; Micke-bror har försökt lära mig se skillnad på de rackarna, men jag lär mig visst aldrig)

Jag är ingen fiskeexpert (jag tar bara bilderna), om du vill ha koll på vilka firrar man kan dra upp i rudan så måste jag hänvisa till Lilla Fiskelyckan.

That's the hole idea T.And it's great fun.

Hrm, en regnbåge. Det borde jag anat. Jag skulle få smisk om lillebror visste.

I met Jesper again a couple of days ago. At this bench. He had cut off his hair so he looked a bit different. We chatted a bit about this and that.
