For breakfast, they served rolls with butter and jam, or cold cuts. There was yogurt and muesli, coffee cake, and cheese.
You know, in Denmark, they don’t eat Danish for breakfast. Kind of disappointing.
But the food was good and hearty. We, like the seasons travelers we are, filled our bellies on the complimentary breakfast and hoped that we would only need a light lunch later.
Thing is, Malmo is a nice place to live. Just a little cheaper than Copenhagen, we’re told. A lot of people live in Malmo and work in Copenhagen. And they do it by train. There is a giant bridge that makes this possible.
They seem to use bikes just as much as Denmark.

Isn’t that a cute bridge?
Chris said, “Remember, Copenhagen is a capital. Maybe that’s why it seems like a rougher city.”
I was still recovering from the sunburn I’d gotten in Suomenlinna. I really thought it would be a good idea to get some sunscreen.
“They talked about that in the guidebook. It’s a very old drug store.”
I have to say, it was the fanciest place I have ever purchased sunscreen.
“Are you thinking of Kinkade now?” Chris asked
“Well, there are plenty of bushes to pee in around here…” I said.
Old is not hard to find in Europe.
I guess Sweden missed the fashion for fairy tale castles. These are working castles.
The american eagle is looking pretty tame and polite now. Maybe he needs a make-over to be more fierce.
But I guess there are those who say the symbol of america is quite fierce enough…
Chris snuck in a maritime museum as well. More Ships! Actually, I was quite glad to see the museum, since I was getting a case of traver’s tummy and needed to be near the bathroom.
This place had another submarine. This one was a lot bigger than the Vessiko:
It’s name is right there: U 3
It’s amazing to me that such a large ship is moved by two small propellers:
Now, this maritime museum had a massive collection of small ships. Not as small as Chris’s ships, but much more detailed because they are made as prototype models by the people who actually make the real ships. No expense spared, these manufacturer models are gorgeous.
Naturally, Chris took a million photos of them. I didn’t.
Maybe after he downloads his pictures I’ll post some.
But we spent a long time looking at those models. Sweden is also a seafaring country.
hoo…that was a long day. We ate McDonald’s for dinner and collapsed into bed.
“Tomorrow, we’ll go to Elsinore.”
“THAT will be very very cool.”
