The chinese boat gets shanghaied

For half a decade, there has been a strange boat situated in the Gothenburg harbor. It is the Chinese restaurant called Floating Sea Palace, cleverly disguised as a dragon ship. It has no engine and the dragon has seen better days, but it has been there for an eternity in my mind. Situated just outside the window of my previous office location, it was surrounded by a bit of office lore.

However, it’s been abandoned for several years now and the time has come to move it to another site across the river. It’s a solid piece of garbage but it still feels sad to watch the old junk pile leave. It’s better to burn out than to be towed away, or whatever Bruce Lee used to say. I suppose it’s the way of the dragon.

Dragon boat So long dragon, and thanks for all the fish.
