So we get off the train and walk into the station area looking for something, anything that will lead us to the metro. Not a thing. Ok, let's ask a local policeman or someone in a uniform. "Hello, do you know where is metro." The response was a blank look. He turned to a friend nearby for help. "Metro" I said again. A glimmer of understanding was in his eyes. A stirring of hope in my heart. He then ...

As I got closer, I could see the band was an army band playing outside the museum with 20 or so old babushkas watching. I listened for a bit while some of the babushkas went inside.

The customs process was interesting, the Finns came through first with the guns and the pepper spray and gave ...
... that, but I've been all over Europe now, and I would argue that the vast majority are. Oh sure for $30 you can go to a 5 star hotel or restaurant and probably (maybe) get a decent breakfast, but that's not what normal people in Europe eat. For the most part people in Europe do NOT know how to make a good breakfast, period.
Still hungry, I had to get over the museum ASAP! They don't open until 10:30 and close at 6:00 so that doesn't leave too much time to ...
