Memories of 2013 where Eurovision was last held in Sweden

We're hoping that they just bought a sofa and not stole it

Today is a fairly quiet, chill out day, which was the point of staying in Malmö.

We head down for lunch at Hyllie. The train station is just underneath the Malmö Arena, where the 2013 Eurovision was held - ah memories. And of course, lunch is at Vapianos. We discovered on Saturday when we arrived, after a walk about, that the Vapiano restaurant nearer to the central station, and our hotel, has been closed. A bit rude we think; we should have been consulted on this radical move.

We do a bit of shopping whilst we're at Hyllie at the Emporia shopping centre (no photos this time as we've taken photos of it previously). There's an apple store here, so Gav decides to buy a cord to go from the laptop to the tv (the tv's at the hotels have plugs for this), so we can watch our own tv. After all, there's only so much tv in another language you can't understand, or The Simpsons, one can watch at night.

In the afternoon we go back up to Traingeln station and walk back slowly to the town centre and we stop into a Condeco coffee shop and chill for a bit before we go back to the hotel.

Tonight we opt for a cheaper dinner. About a block away we find that there's a vietnamese cafe which mostly caters for the lunch crowd with vietnamese rolls, but they also have rice vermicelli dishes so we have one of those before going back to the hotel.
