I have a cold, so I slept in this morning while Alex went to his conference. He came back, and we headed out to see more sights. The big difference is that today it is snowing. A lot.
We went into the Royal Palace, but we could not take photos. Then we walked around the side of the palace to the other side, on our way to the Medieval Museum. There was more snow, and the streets were pretty empty.
We were quickly covered in snow.
But we were not outside for too long.
The stairs down to the museum.
We went across the bridge and in search of some coffee in the more modern downtown area. We stopped at Coffee by George (which seems to be a chain), and then we went across the street to NK to get some dinner at the food court. After eating out so many times, bread and cheese seemed like enough! We walked from there inside a mall, and to the subway station to catch a green line back to Thorildsplan, the closest stop to our hotel.
No matter where we get on, we always seem to get off the train at the far end of the platform.
I said before that people were not riding bikes much. That is true, and you can see why. But the amazing thing is that we did see some people ride bikes in the heavy snow today. One girl did so in her mini-skirt! Some people are more committed to riding than most of us!
Now we are in our room, flipping the channels and watching the BBC try to fill the time while they wait for some real news out of Egypt.
