var marker;

function initMap() {
  var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {

    center: { lat: 59.325, lng: 18.07 }
  });

  marker = new google.maps.Marker({
    map: map,
    draggable: true,
    animation: google.maps.Animation.DROP,
    position: { lat: 59.327, lng: 18.067 }
  });
  marker.addListener("click", toggleBounce);
}
