21 November 2009: By train to
Malmö. I receive a text messages: 'sitting in the carriage 13,
cattle wagon'. My friend's dog is happy to see me. In Malmö we go

many pictures of this view, now there's another one. Moving towards the
railway station. In a parking garage is a fitness center. In a large
window we see a man training. Excuse me, can not help but take a
