Brits, Yanks and Helsingirls -
a night out in Helsingborg
(in pictures)

What I think:

A few nights ago, I went out with the Yank (a.k.a. Johnny), another visiting Yank (Kai), and a visiting Brit (Neil). We went to a fairly popular bar here in town called Utposten ("The Outpost"). We had arranged to meet a few girls we knew, who were at the wedding we went to last month.

Neil had just arrived that day, and was rather tired, as he'd taken the early flight from London Stansted, which meant that he'd left home at about 2:30 a.m. At first, he seemed to be holding up quite well:

Recipe for disaster: two Yanks and a Brit, please.

Kai was here working for a few weeks. He's back in Philadelphia now, but he's returning within the next week or so. Because this town rocks, obviously.

Here are the girls we were meeting there (two of whom work at the Grand Hotel - where, as I reported earlier this year, you can just walk off the street and get a free breakfast):

Swedish girls are so cheap that,
not only do three of them share a drink,
but they each pay for their own third separately.

Andrea was happy to finally get her own drink, and Johnny begins to feel the effects of that evil liquid known as beer:

Meanwhile, across the table, Neil's brilliant British sense of understatement and nonchalance was having quite a stimulating effect on Linda:

In the end, the indescribable hilarity of all the fun and excitement of the evening was almost too much for the girls to bear. You could tell that they were about to pass out from exhaustion. But Neil, with his true emperial resolve and stiff upper lip, kept the party going until the wee hours of the morning:
So now it's time to vote for your favourite Helsingirl of the evening. Leave a comment to cast your vote.The winning girl will receive a fridge magnet. Maybe.

1. Smiling Girl.

2. Kissing Girl

3. Pouting Girl

Girls in Helsingborg need to lighten up and learn to enjoy themselves like the Brits and the Yanks do. It's time that the Swedish government did something about it. That's what I think.
