GBG File 003. Keillers Park (Ramberget)

I moved from Johanneberg to Hisingen the other day. Johanneberg, where I had lived for three and half years, is a calm neighbourhood. It was comfortable to live there as I could go to my uni and the downtown easily by my feet or the three bus lines. I have only almost one month to go back to Japan, however, I decided to move from my beloved Johanneberg to Wieselgrensplatsen on Hisingen which is over the bridge and filled with the 60s apartments. At first, I missed the fine neighbourhood I used to live…But well, I am now so glad that I moved to “the other side”. There are some international markets, restaurants and a pretty good coffee place around where I live. And the best is the hill which one can see over Gothenburg! Its highest point is 1m higher than “Lipstick”. It’s always “the other side” (now I’m saying this from “this side”..) which has things going on (shops, schools, museums and the amusement park..) but there are more than that in Gothenburg. I have only a month but am so excited to discover the hidden places on this island! (yes Hisingen is actually the 5th biggest island in Sweden)

先日、ヨハンネベリ(Johanneberg)からヒッシンゲン(Hisingen)に引っ越した。3年半住んだヨハンネベリは閑静な住宅街と学生寮が混じった地域で、大学や中心街まで歩いても3つのバスでも行ける、とても住みやすいところだった。ところが、あとひと月で帰国というのに、川をトラムで渡った先の60年代に建てられた団地へ引っ越しすることに。最初は、都落ちだなーと思った。が、新居の周りを探索し始めると、なんだいろいろあって面白いじゃないの。中東系の食品や野菜が一面に並ぶスーパーにアメリカンダイナー、そしてRambergetという森/丘。なんとここからはイェーテボリが一望できる。40krくらいかかって86mのリップスティックからの眺めよりタダで海面87mのこの丘からの眺めのほうが断然おすすめだ。イェーテボリと言ったら対岸しかいつもスポットを浴びないけれど、ヒッシンゲンも面白い。スウェーデンで5番目に大きな島ヒッシンゲンに隠されたお宝スポットを、あとひと月だけど、発掘していきたいな。
