Malmö: Elegant and Impressive



July 31, 2015

The taxi ride from the train station to the hotel is quite brief, yet my driver, an Iranian man, never stops smiling.  

I immediately like this city.

The ornate and colorful architecture is impressive without being intrusive.   

The grand Stortorget plaza is just that – grand.  

The air is clear; the streets are clean.

Transportation is eco-friendly.

Folks are cheerful and shop owners are genuinely helpful.

My special-menu lunch includes a salad bar, pasta, beverage, desert and coffee.  The staff is hospitable and charming.

Next to my hotel is a small fruit and vegetable shop.  The young man, from Turkey, sells me the sweetest nectarines I have ever eaten.

I find a Thai restaurant and order a favorite dish - fried vegetables with cashew nuts.

Since it’s Friday, I walk to the elegant Art Nouveau/Moorish Revival Malmo Synagogue to attend Sabbath services. 

I like this city!
