... lady raised an amused eyebrow and silently handed me a pair of Fiskars to extract the brightly coloured pachyderm emblazoned poster. After an Orla influenced päiväunet and the odd surprise reminiscence of the earlier herring we ventured back out for a walk down by the docks and back to the K-market for some food for the nightly smorgasbord and wine.

Chris on the other hand got himself an Helsinki card and was training and tramming all around the city looking for bargains and yes he did find some. Helsinki is a very attractive city but very cold, except all the locals are saying it was one of the mildest winters in years and it hasn't snowed for two ...
