Göteborg: day 1

First stop - lunch at the Saluhallen, an indoor market built in the 1880s that was right next to our hotel - lucky us! Canteen-style broths and soups served in metal bowls and jugs of water, hot and humid with the drizzle outside and no time for chatting as the queues keep coming. Ryvita piled high with marinated cucumber and redcurrants became my new favourite dish!

Wandering around the city in the constant drizzle, lots of water and water-themed things to see, hotel boats in the harbour, perfectly symmetrical reflections of the architecture, unicorn sculptures around the fountain and the swimming pool on the roof of our hotel.

Interesting shop signs and fonts, blue bicycle and intricate window grille, quirky prints on net curtains and a poster for the Röhsska Museum of design, fashion and applied arts.
