Day 8 - Kalmar, Sweden
|Saturday, July 6, 2002: We spent only a short time in Kalmar, Sweden in order to rest up for our big trip to Berlin the next day. However, we did get to take a look at a Russian submarine docked in the harbor. Having had two full days in Russia, Tom didn't feel compelled to go on board and see more.
|Why not try a McThomas at McDonald's? We had already had lunch aboard the ship, so we didn't sample Tom's tasty namesake. But we did photograph it, of course.
|We didn't have enough time or interest to tour Kalmar's medieval castle, but we felt guilty enough to photograph it from a distance. It's the pointy building beyond the marina.
Those Swedes have such a cool sense of design! This sculpture is a large, smooth marble ball floating in enough water to spin in place easily when pushed. We later learned that this is called a Kugel fountain and we've seen several since then.
|It seems that every European city has its own Gamla Stan, and here is Kalmar's version.
We were treated to another gorgeous sunset around 9:45 PM as we departed Sweden for Germany.
