Göteborg is such a lovely city! In March I could attend the first plenary meeting of the Research Data Alliance. Great event, great city! The only drawback at this business trip was the weather conditions in Berlin, where I got stranded at night.

You can get (e.g. CP2102 Module Modul USB to TTL Converter) for a few bucks Ebay, but expect a few weeks for the delivery from China. If you follow the tutorial on the OpenRouters page closely, it should work out quite nicely. Nevertheless, here are some pictures:
