Gothenburg, part five! On Monday, we didn’t exactly know what to do, but we decided to go to the Majorna district, because we had heard it was nice, but when we got there it turned out it wasn’t actually that interesting (unless we missed something – in that case: please let me know what’s so nice about Majorna!) We walked around Karl Johans Kyrka, which looked nice, and then we went into this store called Ebbes Second Hand and I checked out the book section, but I didn’t buy anything because I had already bought so many books the day before.
After that, we walked to a square called Stigbergstorget and we checked out this record store called BenGans, which might look familiar to you if you’ve seen Känn Ingen Sorg, a movie about a Swedish singer called Håkan Hellström (I also wrote a blogpost about it, here). Funny thing: I actually bought a Håkan Hellström cd there! :)
Then it started raining, and we decided to have our lunch at the hostel. Afterwards, Ken took a nap and Bert and I played a card game called spit (in Dutch it’s called zenuwen, which means nerves) and we just sat inside having a nice time while it kept raining outside. For the first time that week, I really felt like having a cup of coffee, and I searched the entire kitchen for coffee but without any luck.
Around six in the evening we thought it was time to get out of the hostel and have some dinner, and we found this nice Mexican place called Tomtoms Burritos. I really liked the interior, and the food was really good (and at a good price too!) And then it was time to head back to the hostel and pack, because we would leave the next day.
