malmö/ jesse hodges scandanavian visit

Riding the train to Malmö.

Off the train we quickly settled into a Pilsner Urquell owned bar.

View from the bar of Lilla Torg square.

Swedes used to be badass vikings, now they just use their heritage to inform you of discount items. I personally would like to see a resurgance in raping and piliging the English, but whatever.

Nike tracksuits for Jesus.

Malmö Folkets Park (right behind Debaser) has a ride dedicated to every terrible Batman movie and the awful Catwoman spinoff.

This kid seems shocked and/ or frightened by the fact that you are trying to eat a cake with her face on it, plus the hat thing.

Debaser venue for the nights Pteradactyl show.

Before the show we went with Jesse and the dactyl's too a party at Deleted Art Records and then to the bar pictured below for more pre-party partying. (photo taken the morning after)

Hodges in action.

Swedish rock 'n' roll fans.

Ft Worth to Sweden.

I am sure each one of us will say this is easily the best picture we've ever taken.

DAY 2!
Kung-fu mannequins.

Crystal was taken by the little old lady in white and her bubble umbrella.

Malmö's farmers market kicks Karlskrona's ass.

This is an old cemetary downtown, it had more flowers/ greenary than either of us had seen in too damn long.



A cute old phonebooth in Lilla Torg square and token tourist photos to accompany it.

This place might have a vegetarian option for you, but it's at your own risk.

Goose crossing.

Malmohus Castle is the oldest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia, it was built by a Danish king when Malmo was part of Denmark and then was fortified in the 1600's (with the addition of the moat seen below) by a Swede and quickly repelled the last Danish attempt to reclaim the land. I think some Danes still hold all this against Sweden, and vice-versa.

Many a Danish invader were most likely killed by arrows shot through this neat little arrow shooting hole. Castles are cool.

A windmill stripped of its power.

Cityhall in Stortoget square.

This is S:T Petri Kyrka (St. Peter's Church), it dates back to the early 14th century. The picture doesn't really do the steeple justice because it is really ludicrously tall. The fact that it was made without any modern technology (like a crane) is just wild.

A bundle of bikes as we head to the train station and back to Karlskrona.
