Burträsk is a small village 30 minutes drive from the coast line in the north of Sweden, famous for its very special Wästerbotten cheese manufacturing. In Burträsk you greet each and every person you meet, and last year the cheapest house in the country could be found here. You know if a person is from Burträsk as they grow hair under their feet.

Quote from an ex Burträsk citicen:
”That hair under the feet thing appears in more or less true stories. True for sure anyway is that it falls off when you move from there”.

Either with or without feet fur, my favourite Burträsk sticker travelled with me on my suitcase for many years: “Burträsk – in the middle of the world”.
