Viking visitors

Swedes visit Gothenburg

Three Swedish brothers from Gothenburg’s sister city Göteborg, made Gothenburg a day’s destination Monday when they traveled here from Fort Collins, CO. Two of the brothers, Petter and Johan Nerman, live in Göteborg but came to visit Karl Nerman who is a poker player and musician in Fort Collins. While in Gothenburg, they bought Swede sweatshirts and other items at Peterson’s Supermarket and toured some sites such as the Swedish crosses. Johan discovered the connection between the two cities when he developed a trivia game about Sweden.
