Waking up late we make ourselves a nice breakfast and head downtown to do a walking tour of Helsinki. 

We check out the local market where we try some local sweets and then head over to Suomen Linna island to play around in the old fort and enjoy the great weather.  The island is a great retreat from the city and there are a few picnics but the fort is largely abandoned, making a beautiful setting for fun and games.  We check out some of the old artillery and explore some hobbit-like bunkers, investigating all sorts of nooks and crannies.

We head back to Yan's place and move downtown to play some pool and drink some beers with his buddies.  It seems like pool is a fan favorite here in Helsinki.  His buddies are good people and we do a mini bar crawl that doesn't take us too far.  At closing time, his buddies invite us back to their place to "start the party" but we decline and head home after a relatively "low-key" night, I guess...
