Vara is very beautiful and bucolic; a five hour bus ride from Stockholm. The population of Vara itself is less than 4,000, so the 250 odd people we had in the Vara Concert Hall were over 5% of the population! We're staying in a Chateau called Bjertorp slott in Kvanum which is very grand, and provided the unexpectedly perfect location for Alan's birthday treat of some very very fancy scotch. ( He's not sad in the picture, just overcome by emotion at the very whiff of his drink.)
