After eight (PM) is the perfect time of day on my balcony. It’s facing northwest and there is rarely sunlight. And Göteborg is a windy city.
That means having a drink and/or a chat on the balcony very seldom is pleasant – it is simply too cold! However, during a month or two in the summertime, there is direct sunlight in the evenings and chances to enjoy the open air and birds’ song for about an hour. Those moments can be very nice.
