I've been inside all day, and I stil can't walk! It's a bit scary. I barely made it home. I was so stiff on the plane I could barely move anything, much less my legs. All my muscles feel so cramped up. Argh, and the pollen and the heat...
Helsinki weather was just right for me, clear and beautiful, and pleasantly warmish. Nearly every day, though, it would cloud over about lunchtime and drizzle. One day, there was a huge thunderstorm, but luckily I was on the 'hop-on, hop-off' tourist bus. There was one thunderclap so frighteningly dramatic, I thought we'd been struck, for a second.
It's a stunning place, really, so clean, and people seem genuinely laid back and friendly. There's a lot of lovely art nouveau. It reminds me a bit of Riga. Camilla had scored us a very posh airB&B flat. It was frighteningly white, which you got used to, and had a lot of stairs, which I didn't. It was in 'the design area' and had a well-off, middle class vibe, even with the two sex shops and the Death Metal emporium (always closed...) downstairs. JUst loved it, all in all.
