Mr Monkey in Stockholm, August 14th

"That aunt has magic powers, you know"

Mr Monkey scurried back up to Stora Gatan, stopping at the Tant Bruns cafe because his humans were thirsty again. Tant Bruns is named after a character in Tant Brun, Tant Grun och Tant Gredelin, by Elsa Beskow*. Eventually he was able to scamper along Stora Gatan. By the time he got to it, the tourist office in the Drakegården was closing, so he couldn't get in, though he could admire the pouncing dragon that gives the building its name. Then it was time to go back to the car park.

* The 1948 production of Tant Brun, Tant Grun och Tant Gredelin was the first Swedish film made in colour.
