The Dalarna experience started with a Taxi ride, a trip to IKEA for lunch and visit to Kupolen – the shopping centre. There was then a lecture about the Dalarna region. Thereafter, we got to meet very friendly and welcoming Dalarna University students. In the evening we had a barbeque.
On the second day, we took trip to Falun – the ‘’capital’’ of Dalarna. There we got to visit and tour the Falu Gruva. We got to learn about its glory days, stories about its past and the challenges it faces.
Later that day, we visited the Dalarna museum. The museum is full of interesting monuments, artwork, costumes and of course, the great Dala horse. And then, the Dalarna University students magnanimously organised a party to welcome us. This was a very kind gesture. Thanks, guys.
On the third day, we got to work with our groups. This is certainly the highlight of the experience. Rivaled only by the presentation the next day. The presentation day was full of ideas.
The Dalarna experience is an experience is invaluable. I have learned a lot and met very nice people.
W did not leave Sweden without exploring Stockholm.
