The clan took a road trip down to Malmö to visit the MalmöFestivalen that takes place every August for one week. Of course, we waited until the last day to go ! The down-town streets and squares of Malmö are full with food vendors (a huge variety...Lebanese, Hungarian, Thai, African, Tex-Mexican, etc.) and booths with handicrafts and other booths with imported "junk" (sunglasses, plastic stuff). My favorite food vendor to watch and listen to is the CHILEAN chorizo place...the grills are surrounded by musicians dancing and tapping their BBQ forks to the beat of the salsa music! Que Divertido!!! I saw the Vietnamese vendor across the way shaking her hips to their sounds.
Lots of booths with all kinds of fun stuff to buy! As we walked through the festival, I heard so many languages (Arabic, Spanish, French, English, Vietnamese, Chinese, Polish...etc) makes me realize how diverse southern Sweden really is when everyone comes out into the center!
My husband's parents met us for lunch (they live in Malmö)...each person purchased the food that they had a hankering for and we could eat together under the shade trees. YUMMY!
More views...it was hard to take photos that captured the diversity of the festival and the colorful vending booths. I'll try harder next year! At night, the live music dominates the festival with venues for all types of music spread out throughout the center. When Maya is older....we'll check those out.
