It was a windy evening and the rooks gathering in the birch tree were all facing the wind. Before it is dark there will be almost two hundred rooks siitung in that birch and on the roof.

Let's take a walk with my iPad doing some finger sketches in Copenhagen. We start in Nyhavn the beautiful canal / port and end  at the Opera House.

Gamla Väster, Malmö
Finger sketching on iPad
MALMÖ. None of the houses are more than 200 hundred years old but the street has been there for 800 years.  The street has seen houses being built, torn down and new houses being built up again. Not to mention all the people who has lived on this street during these times.

That Malmö street has a lot of stories to tell.

Zapiekanka on plac Nowy

Zapiekanka is a sketch by artist and illustrator Artmagenta
Zapiekanka: I’d eat this everyday of my life, damn tasty!

 Zapiekanka is the Polish version of pizza.  It’s a long sliced half of a baked baguette, mushrooms and cheese on top with a very liberal dose of tomato ketchup. This is the traditional version but you can alternate the toppings with your own plus also add a sprinkling of fried onions or chives on top. Delicious.

Plac Nowy, Krakow

The best Zapiekanke you get at plac Nowy,  the hub of all the action in Kazimierz. On a summer evening it’s a great setting for a delicious snack!

I think there's a jackdaw convention at the Castle Coffee house

The sightseeing boat passes the coffee house
The Castle Windmill, Malmö






The Coffee Garden in the Castle Park is an excellent place for recreation with coffee and sandwiches and why not have lunch. The food is excellent and the place is beautiful, especially in summer.
You can eat in the greenhouse too


Beware of the jackdaws. There are plenty of them and they are professional food thieves. Turn away from your table a few secs and your food will be gone!

It's fun to sit and watch those birds, at least as long as it is not my food they are eating. They are intelligent and know exactly when to strike.

An excellent opportunity to draw birds in motion. They are masters at flying in small spaces.
The jackdaws are professional food thieves here in Malmö

The Crazy Russian

The crazy Eussian is  ssketch by illustrator Artmagenta
This is Pjotr. He is also known as the Crazy Russian. I don't know why we call him that so let's hear what he has to say about it himself:
- I'm not from russia and my name is not even Pjotr, and me being crazy.... well I don't know if that's true either.
Look at this wrist watch. We say the hands of the clock move clockwise, so if I put the wrist watch on my right arm, then the clock is upside down, but is it still moving clockwise?
I know the answer. If you need to think  more than 2 secs on this, it's probably you who are the crazy one. 
Well, that is Pjotr, crazy as always.

Turning Torso in Malmö
Turning Torso is the tallest skyscraper in Sweden and the Nordic countries, situated in Malmö, Sweden, located on the Swedish side of the Öresund strait. Upon completion, it was the tallest building in Scandinavia.
The building was designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and officially opened on 27 August 2005.
The tower reaches a height of 190 metres (623 feet) with 54 stories.
The building is constructed in nine segments of five-story pentagons that twist as it rises; the topmost segment is twisted ninety degrees clockwise with respect to the ground floor. Each floor consists of an irregular pentagonal shape rotating around the vertical core, which is supported by an exterior steel framework.
