Gotland Medieval Festival Gotland is an island off the coast of Sweden. The largest city is Visby, a walled medieval town. The city is stunning, but it was even more so since we visited during the annual medieval fair. People had elaborate authentic costumes and there was period music being performed through out the city. Booths offered delicious food, and hand made wares of iron, felt, and fur for sale. We were not in the shopping mode, but I was most tempted by sheepskin slippers. We did end up getting really fabulous wooden butter spreading knife, though.
I have more pictures forthcoming, right now they are on the laptop that is waiting to be revived by the inhome tech support man, who has quite a lot on his plate these days...Check back later for more pictures and more Gotland posts!
