Rain on the 22nd

And here are some pictures to show you why we actually need to improvise Indian-like atmosphere in our apartments. Because outside it looks like this...
We are taking a walk in Malmö, the city closest to Lund.

My Indian Party

This past weekend I celebrated in Indian style my 34th birthday. In the grey and dark Swedish weather just to imagine India being close is a relief! Here are some pictures to illustrate the warmth we generated from our happy feelings :-)
The absolute star of the party, Adriana, who was working in India for a year ago...

And Indian Hans, as always the cocktail master: this time a light mint julep
Tobe and Jonas
Mi, who looks unusually tiny besides Devin
Two European tourists in our Indian world
The Indian world hinted at above
The loveliest embroidery
Just out of Mumbai
Serving drinks
Safa, Anna, Martin and Anamaria - all very Indian
Both Anna and Adriana have been in India, lots to talk about
Conversations and debates
Around the table
Mattias fits well in this Indian camis
Oh, the moustache!
Nataranja Shiva
All so Indian, again
Bollywood here they come!
Bollywood for real
Do note the socks, please
Very relaxed
Double hello
Midnight happy birthday singers in 3D

Waaay after midnight

Sunday Sailing

This Sunday Jonas invited us for a short sailing tour outside Höllviken. It turned out to be my first real sailing competition (which we did not win, by the way), and the first time the wind was so soft we could use the spinnaker, the largest, most colorful sail in the arsenal of sailors. Some pictures showing us on board and our companions in the sailing competition.

And some pics from copenhagen

These weekends appear to be full of action or at least full of pictures. This posting of mine comes in bursts... Anyway, here are some typical views from Copenhagen: a park alley, the Tivoli amusement park, the Carlsberg (beer producer) elephant, several doors and, finally, some views from our evening promenade on the canals in Christianshavn, together with Mike.
