“Travels to a Different Time” :25June1975: Ystad, Sweden: Burgers with The Boppers

Up at 07:30 for a hot shower. So good! I needed to ask someone how to use it. You set the temperature and press a button and water shoots out of the shower head for about 40 seconds and stops. You keep pressing the button until you are done. It gives you time to soap up and it must keep energy costs low. For breakfast a can of Polish mackerel I brought over from Poland, bread, apple cake and a litre of cold milk. Very satisfying. I walked into town to an optician to get my lens placed back in my glasses. I also stopped in at tourist information to ask about working in Sweden which can be done if you obtain a work permit. It was a beautiful sunny day pleasantly warm. How sweet it is as Jackie Gleason used to say. I came home and sat in my underwear in the sun until 16:00 and then went to the beach. The water was freezing cold and it is understandable why the Swedes head to Greece and Yugoslavia for the beautiful warm water. There are all sorts of cabins on the beach so this must be a tourist site in July and August. Supper was soup, peas, cucumber and bread. When I finished some bored boppers came over and we finished off my small bottle of rum with some coca cola. Liquor is a staggering price over in Sweden so again another reason to head to Greece and Yugoslavia. Had some burgers with the boppers and asleep by 22:00.
