Start of the 2014 World Dog Show

... them again. We were lucky and enjoyed their performance, but we made Alex wait for us as the shops were still open and Sarina wanted a better top in case she was asked to show one of Taina's Lappys tomorrow. She doesn't really mind if she gets the opportunity or not, but just wants to be prepared. Pizza for dinner after a very laid back day. Tomorrow, however, we expect to be very full-on! With lots and lots of Finnish ...

I settled into my home-for-a-week, downtown studio flat and went in search of groceries, just down the block. It’s the season for berries and green peas! ...

Cloudy & cold here today just don't seem to be attracting the sun. Anyway waiting for our tour & will report later. The tour of Helsinki started with a bus that's microphone didn't work so the guide stood in the middle & yelled at everyone. Not one of the best tours but the place was interesting. Once again checked out the palaces & museums. ...
