On Thursday my next host mom, Mia, took me and the Italian exchange student she is currently hosting to Skåne where her parents live. She picked me up at five o’clock on Thursday. Now it is completely dark by five so I couldn’t actually see anything of the drive and it was also foggy. Mia’s parents live in a little town called Tomelilla that is about four hours drive away from Göteborg. When we got there it was pretty late so we just ate a little, played with their slightly psychotic dog and then we went to bed.
On Friday we drove to Ystad which is a cute little, very old town right on the sea. We toured around a bit, then we had fika. There wasn’t too much to do there so we didn’t stay for long.

After Ystad we drove about forty-five minutes over to Malmö, the biggest city in the South of Sweden. There we went to a building called the Turning Torso, which is the tallest in Sweden. Near there was a really cool play ground that Elisa and I enjoyed playing on for a little while and then we all went to lunch. After lunch we went over to visit Mia’s ex-husband’s parents. They live on a little island right outside of Malmö that is very close to Denmark. You can see the bridge that goes from Sweden to Denmark and on a good day you can see Copenhagen, but it was too cloudy that day. We didn’t spend too long there because we had to get back to Tomelilla so we could do a night tour of this old church. Back in Tomelilla we ate dinner with Mia’s parents and we chatted for a while, then Elisa and I watched an episode of Lie to Me and went to sleep.

On Saturday we woke up late and just relaxed around the house for awhile. Elisa slept really late, so I spent a while practicing my Swedish with Mia and her mom. Then we drove home because we didn’t want to get home to late and it takes a little while to get home.
|I never thought I would miss tractors|
|We found llamas!|
I know this is mostly pictures and not many words but my English is quickly failing me and I took almost 400 pictures this weekend.
