Fängselfesten 2019

Yesterday we had a reunion at the Royal Institute of Technolog, and it was great to see so many of my old classmates. At Engineering Physics (Teknisk Fysik) each year gets a name starting with a F, ours was “Fängsel”, which is a play on the Swedish word “fängslande” that means “captivating” and “handfängsel” which is handcuffs (there is a story behind that).

Uti Kalmare stad,

förrän lördagen.
     Hej dick
     Hej dack,

     och vi drack.
     Hej dickom dickom dack,
     hej dickom dickom dack.
För uti Kalmare stad,

förrän lördagen.
