Royal guard

Originally uploaded by marymompics

Another stop in Gamla Stan was the palace which was guarded by young soldiers. Every time a kid would play on the chains or try to touch the canons, this guard would stiffly march over with his hand held up like a traffic cop and say “no.” Having a rifle with a bayonet added to the drama. It really made an impression on the kids who were much better behaved afterwards.
