Students . . . would you like to work in Landskrona, Sweden this summer?
Actually, this is not a joke. The City of Landskrona sent me an email asking me to advertise their need for students to work in summer jobs in Landskrona. Swedes by law get at least 4-6 weeks of vacation each year, plus are paid a large sum to cover the costs. Thus, there is always a labor shortage in the summer. Evidently, they would love to have Native Americans stay for awhile in their city . . . or perhaps they still have fond memories of the time that a certain young Creek architecture graduate spent with them. LOL What they seem to need most are young people to act as companions for the elderly . . . to go to the supermarket and take walks with them, etc. Landskrona is a wonderful city of about 40,000 residents on the Oresund Channel across from Hamlet’s Castle and only about 45 minutes by train from Copenhagen, Denmark. It is very easy to walk or ride a bicycle to all your daily needs. You don’t need an auto! It has ferry connections to Poland, Germany and Finland. If you are Uchee, the Province of Skåne is where your ancestors came from! There are many Bronze Age mounds, petroglyphs and stone circles in this region of Sweden.

People from many parts of the world have moved to Landskrona in the past 50 years. Culturally, Landskrona is light years more sophisticated that most American cities. Each June, the city of Landskrona sponsors a parade to honor their new citizens. You will notice that the Swedes join with their neighbors in the parades . . . note the blondes doing Brazilian dances! LOL I have included a video sent me by the Landskrona Economic Development Department, plus a video of the Landskrona Karneval parade. If you are apprehensive of living overseas, it will give you a better idea of what life is like there. Students, when you are young and free is the time to travel and see the world. It will be harder and much more expensive to travel when you have family responsibilities!
