21 August : City Rally in Skellefteå

Today Cohort 3 performed the city rally in kicking off the Orientation Week in Skellefteå. We started with a quick tour around campus and saw the nearby cafe (Stig’s Café), the Villagatan dorm, a recycling station, the Frögatan dorm, the biogas factory, the lock (separating the Skellefte river from the Baltic Sea), had a quick stopover at the River Café Kajutan (where Emil ordered their famous shrimp sandwich), then saw the Staregatan dorm, the hockey arena, and finally the Vitberget viewpoint offering a nice overview of the city. Before going back to campus, Giang, Nhi, Chandara, Manish, Valentin, and Emil picked blueberries under the supervision of Ornela. We finished off at campus with a light meal composed of thin crisp bread with Västerbotten cheese, pancakes, and a selection of cakes including a fresh blueberry cake that Ornela and Giang baked. Weather wise we were very lucky with sunny weather most of the day. Along with Cohort 3 students one pokémon decided to join also.
