As much as I have enjoyed my time in Helsinki, we are here to attend the World Dog Show and the first day has finally come! We were up reasonably early as we had offered the use of our washing machine to Ros and Col. They had thought they would get their washing done at their hotel, but at 2E for a pair of undies, they decided that that wasn't going to happen! So I decided that a tidy up might be an idea.

For those with a head for heights, tale the lift up to the top of the Stadium Tower and marvel at the 360 degrees panoramic views of Helsinki below.
