The city of Sundsvall.

Sundsvall is a small ex-industrial town, not bigger than 100,000 people. It is located in the northeast part of Sweden, and it gets blistering cold (and dark) here in the winter. The town has a few skislopes and a port, and is surrounded by two smaller mountain chains as well as massive amounts of pine forest. The city is mostly calm and quiet, but the people are extremely friendly and speak with a northern swedish accent also known as "norrlandska". People here have a huge tendancy to drink beer and use a tobacco product called "snuff" -- even the women. I can best describe this product as chewing tobacco, but without the spitting part (they swallow it instead -- yuck). Quite disgusting actually, but everyone has their thing I guess. Sundsvall is a pretty small town, but has four elite sports teams in floorball, basketball, soccer, and hockey, which is truly amazing. There is definitely a lingering "small town" feeling which I enjoy, and everyone knows everyone around here. There are a few bars and clubs, but I haven't really checked them out yet. I am truly excited to be here.
Sundsvall at night!
