Helg kalas

As the week draws (no pun intended) to an end, party planning arrangements are made. Indoor parties - in a contrast to my homeland - seem to be quite popular in Skåne.
Friday, at a friend's apartment in Lund, there was some hard DJing and dancing all night long!
English remained the lingua franca for the evening, as people from at least seven countries were present, including Sweden!
Saturday, at Malmö, in a funny-looking cilindrical building, a birthday party took place. As the previous one, this one also resembled a UN meeting. I lost count of the countries of origin present. We all crossed out our places of origin lie in a world map hung on the wall. Pretty soon, there were tens of crosses scattered all around Europe (and one in Africa!).
Turned out some of the nice people there were musicians (and even one other sketcher), and soon, banded together in a Swedish-Russian band started to improvise some Swedish traditional music, which tended to sound quite klezmer at some point - jättekul!
