Oddly Reminiscent of a Certain Puppet Chef

Weekend before last, I went to Sweden.

There was a certain amount of "Um.  Because I could?" involved in this venture.  I hopped on the train, and an hour later, after a brisk trip across the Øresund, I was in Malmö.

Malmö is pretty cute.  There are some interesting buildings and such-like.  Malmöhus, the castle thingy built by the Danes then promptly used by the Swedes to repel the Danes, is pretty cool looking.

Mostly, however, it was cold.  (It was also cold in Denmark, but I was out and about in the Swedish cold, so I blamed Sweden.)  Also, it was a Sunday (Søndag!), which in Denmark means all the shops are shut but not so much in Sweden.  It was warm in the shops, and the Swedish krona is worth less than the Danish kroner.  And the books are cheaper.

So I didn’t see all that much of Malmö.
