Day 4

Copenhagen& Malmo

IMG_0062.jpg20140819_014857.jpgWe woke to partly cloudy skies and no rain. After breakfast we walked to the station, purchased tickets to Malmo and boarded the train for the 45 minute journey. The train travelled on the bridge joining Denmark and Sweden. The trains share the bridge with the cars on top and the trains below. We had showers along the journey and through the day, punctuated by brief bursts of sunshine. The wind was constant and fairly cold. The maximum was around 17 degrees.
Malmo festival was in progress meaning that many streets in the old, central part of the city were closed to traffic and open pedestrian malls. A giant concert stage was set up in one square and another was ringed with food stalls representing countries from around the world, with dishes available for purchase. We had a type of burger from a South American stand. The regular showers meant we had to seek shelter again and again and it wore on us. We returned to the central station and gambled on the accuracy of our interpretation of the Swedish signs and boarded one to Helsingor. We were either going to Helsinki or back the way we came. As soon as the train departed the in carriage display confirmed we were on the right train. Had we got it wrong we would have had a problem.
We walked back from the station to our apartment and put our feet up for a while. Having sufficiently recharged the batteries we started contemplating how to spend our last evening in Copenhagen. We decided to catch a bus downtown and eat at one of the restaurants in Nyhaven along the canal we explored the other day. It was enjoyable, a spectacular setting but a little on the cold side at around 13 degrees not counting the wind chill factor.
