Day 46: Stockholm to Malmo

Today also we plan to travel about 600 kms. We are moving from the mid - eastern side of Sweden to the southern point of Sweden.

First thing in the morning we went to the Indian Embassy. We had taken appointment online. The visit to Indian Embassy was a revelation. We were received by an officer on the reception desk. He understood our problem and directed us to a lady officer, Ms. Tulsi. She was very co-operative. She said that this is the second instance when someone has approached them with similar problem. She enquired from us whether the passport was in good condition when we handed to Immigration officer at Finland border. We confirmed that it was in good condition. She told us to wait and she consulted her senior officer. She came back and told us that they will get it repaired by fixing glue. They did it. We requested them to give us a letter stating that this repair was done at Indian Embassy. They gave us the letter also. We came out of the embassy within one hour after getting the passport repaired. I hope and pray that this should be good enough to pass through British Immigration when we enter UK and when we leave for Singapore later. We came out with the feeling that our Indian embassy is friendly and cooperative for the people living there, and Indian tourists outside the country and they are very kind and helpful. It is home away from home.

We could start after 12 as we had visited Indian Embassy in the morning. It was a good sight throughout with greenery, cloudy weather at times and the temperature reducing as compared to the northern part of Sweden. As compared to Jukkasjarvi where we had experienced 6 degrees temperature at night, Stockholm and the drive to Malmo was big relief. The sea was there to see.

In the evening, suddenly we saw a rainbow while driving. It was very clear rainbow and we could distinguish all the colours in it. It was quite big.

The drive was smooth. It was a pleasure to drive. We reached Malmo very late.

Malmo is a coastal city in southern Sweden. It lies at the eastern end of the striking Oresund Bridge, a long road and railway bridge-tunnel running to Copenhagen, Denmark. We will cross this bridge tomorrow.
