Yesterday, the residents at Bråta Bo og Aktivitetssenter, Mjøndalen's nursing home and activity centre, celebrated its five year anniversary. That means it's five years since the old nursing home, Veiatun, was closed down. The building still stands, and even though they say that the white wooden building on today's photo is worthy of preservation, it has been sold and the plans are to demolish it and build new apartments. If there is one thing I am not completely satisfied with, here in Eiker, especially Nedre Eiker and Mjøndalen, it is the number of preservation worthy buildings that has been left to rot or demolished, only to be substituted by new red brick "history-less" boring buildings.
