Monty: around the lovely Malmö Arena
I've been to the Malmö arena before, for a Melodifestivalen heat a few years back, so I knew it wasn't the prettiest of arenas as a building. It's located in what can best be described as an area of town about to undergo some development. If you thought the environs of the Crystal Hall in Baku was in the middle of a building site then Malmö is still just excavating. There's very little nearby except for the Malmö Mässan which is where we are now for the press centre, and the Emporium shopping centre, which looks like it's had a bite taken out of it. We'll probably have a little exploration there in search of some local delicacies for luncheon. The ever popular Swedish veggie burger and chips most likely.
