The first of 10 drinking days 十日間の飲酒の初めての日

So, in Gothenburg there is this thing called the “cortège” on the last of April every year. Basically it’s a parade with home made cars, trucks or whatever you want. It’s a big event and the people who build the cars/whatever are the students of the town’s university of technology. That is where I enroll. To join the parade building, you have to pay a lot, but in that price you get tools and equipment for building what ever you want, the possibility to attend parties every night for 10 days and maybe best of all free beer during the 10 buidling days, with no restriction. Kind of awesome. A big parking place behind our uni has turned into a building area with students in building coats drinking beer, building and sunbathing. Today was the start, and of course I somehow got persuaded to join. We are going to build the house in the movie Up. Here are some pictures from today, the first day.

Gothenburgには、”cortège”というイベントが毎年の4月30日にある。自分で作った車などのパレードだ。本当に大きなイベントで車を作る人は町の技術大学の学生だ。私はその大学で勉強してる。パレードに参加するため、すごいお金をいっぱい払わなくちゃいけないけど、車を作ることにてすべて必要なものもらうし、いっぱいパーティにも行けるし、十日間ただのビールをもらうし!飲み放題!素敵でしょ?大学のそばにあるでっかい駐車場は建設地域になって、学生たちがそこで車を作ったり、ビールを飲んだりする。今日、初めての日だった。もちろん、私も参加している。私のグループはUpという映画の家を作ることにした。下記、今日からの写真です!

Someone built this… Just so that you know, Badkar in Swedish means bath tub…
誰か、これを作ったみたい。ちなみに、スウェーデン語でBadkarはお風呂との意味だ。

The first beer!
