Well, I'm in Sweden, home of the meatball...available by the 4kg packet in the supermarkets.

I have spent this afternoon walking the icy streets of Malmo....the camera battery decided to die on the way so there are no pictures yet as I have been unable to locate batteries of sufficient power, and I can't read swedish to speed up the process.
(no evereadys or duracells in the shops)

The streets are full of strolling people and bikes, just like Copenhagen, and there is the smell of good food everywhere. I am heading for a weekend of exploring around the city and hope to get in some skating on a lake or something to keep myself fit.

The people are very much like those at home in australia, but they all tend to look you directly in the eye as you pass them in the street. I haven't encountered this anywhere else in the world, and it is quite challenging at first, particularly knowing ho long to keep up the contact for, before I get myself poked in the chest by someone.

Oh and the reason this could happen is because they are almost to a person, very good looking people.
