    yeah I was really amused lol too bad I was kinda in a hurry otherwise I would have walked around and try to discover more of those :mrgreen:

    I live in Stockholm, Sweden

    lmao well it sure startled me and I am not even scared of rats but I guess I never expected to see one like right there. ^^ I think someone should put a hidden camera there and try to film the reactions of those who pass by.

    If startled passengers try to chase that rat by giving it a kick they're in for a sore toe! :D

    I wonder if we'll come anywhere past that rat on Friday during our Sheep Walk, or on any of the three weekend days when the walk's done and we can go sight-seeing. :D

    We shall walk "Djurgårds Brunnsviken" on Friday, starting 9 a.m. (just in case you want to come gawp at us ;) ;) ;)), on Saturday we'll be outside Stockholm at Bogesund Castle, walking from there into Vaxholm. And on Sunday we'll take the underground to Bergshamra Centrum and walk to Haga parken. (All these places are totally unknown to me, but who knows, the rat may be somewhere there???)

    Will the weather be nice to us?
    Have the weathermen on TV already said something about the weekend weather? Or is Monday still too early for that?

    lol do you mean real money glued to the ground? haha hmm maybe I will do that one day all you have to do is glue or whatever a note on the ground and then take pics of people trying to pick it up :lol:

    haha I actually tried to pick it up lmao
    oh you know what? I will most probably go there one of those days because I have never been to any of those places lmao yeah I know how sad it sounds I mean i have lived here for almost ten years and there are so many places I haven't been to. hmm I don't think you guys will pass there because its located in Södermalm, which is quite far away from where you guys will walk. LMAO haha I do hope I wont get lost in my own city

    You may have stumbled across some very special art there my friend. That rat looks like the signature rat of infamous street artist, Banksy. That would be a pretty awesome to a guy like me. Some people just think he's a criminal, but personally i think his work is beautiful. Check it out: http://www.banksy.co.uk/outdoors/horizontal_1.htm
