Train to Helsingborg. Eat a good lasagna in restaurant Marconi on
Drottninggatan. The bus to Sofiero Castle. The darkness is . Torches
are lining the

rhododendron ravine towards Öresunds. According to what I read in
the advertising will it be enlightened. Pitch Dark. Disappointed. Asks,
"Well it should not be lit." Walking around in the park. Trees are lit. Lawn
red. Hedge illuminated with side light. Many people in the Orangery, which is
inspired by the Mediterranean including ceramics. Many also in the winehouse
demonstrating porcelain. Looking into the garden trade. Outside is a tub of water with
apples and torches. One can warm at the fires, and grilling Marsh
Mallows. At the pond is an installation with light, smoke, and music.
