I just scanned some hard copies of our photos there. I will upload them in this blog by batches. In this batch, some of our field visits in agri farms in southern Sweden. Btway, never mind the date in the photos, it says 1987. These photos were taken sometime in September or October 2003.
Kidding with one of two North Koreans in our batch. The Koreans, they were small and thin, but I think they were sharp mentally. They were Party members of course.
These huge rolls of dried wheat straw are mixed with some chemicals and are given as cattle feeds during winter, where the grasses are covered by ice, cattle can't eat grass, and it's too cold outside. These wheat straw become their main food inside the barn.
The cattles there, they grow very fast, something like they are gaining weight of around 1.5 kilo a day.
Our program facilitators were Inger Ahman (standing, right most) and Marie Hardfors (
sitting, left most and not facing the camera).
