On my last full day in Helsinki and Finland I slept in. After my morning ablutions, I investigated some parts of central Helsinki that I hadn't seen before. It was above freezing and no snow was left on the ground, except in the parks. The piles of snow that I saw last week had melted or been removed. The sky was cloudy again.
