Helsingborg

image

Well my train arrived here on this dark cold night and I trudged up the road to the hotel, with my shoes squeaking and cracking on the pavement - evidence that it had snowed earlier today.

This is the night-time view from my room and it’s about the best I have seen of this Swedish city so far. Across the sound lies the Danish sister city of Helsingar. The two cities are connected by 125 ferries every day and the journey takes a mere 20 minutes. Helsingar is known in English, through the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare, as Elsinore. Unfortunately I probably won’t have time to take the ferry trip this time. But talking of Denmark, and I might have mentioned this before, there are more pigs in the country than people.
