Arrival in Helsinki


It seems like we been sleeping almost continously since the last post. That's not to say that what we've seen of Helsinki hasn't been interesting. It's just that, with the exception of the Greek dinner we just had, nothing really worth commenting upon has occured. And then there's the no-quite-resolved jet lag, allergies, and time change.

Wait, let me take that back. There is the vivid memory of the rain while rolling our bags ten confusing blocks from the train station to the hotel in light, short-sleeve shirts. I've a suggestion for the city planners - street signs! Thanks very much to the staff of the Cafe Java for directions.

We've four days and nights (remember, long days - almost no nights) before we'll take ferry to Sweden, and we've decided to see the city and central museums tomorrow (Sunday) and head for the town of Porvoo on Monday. We'll decide what to do on Tuesday and Wednesday later, but a trip to the archipelago south of here is potential.
