It was damn cold in the bus stop, and not too comfortable either... Had to sleep curled in the bench, then woke up with the legs aching, then walked around to strech them, then got really cold again, then went back to the bench and so on until five something, when there was already plenty of light. With the money I had saved involuntarily by spending the night on the street, I could buy my way back to Helsinki, no point in hitchhiking anymore. So I just spent the whole day in a bus to Rovaniemi and a train from there to Helsinki, arriving at night and going immediately to Jutta's (my host) place and doing nothing else.
The next day I spent walking around the center, seeing the cathedral from the inside (it was closed the last time I was in Helsinki) and the orthodox church and then going to the 'squirrel island', a museum island which has old buildings from all over Finland in display and a large lot of really friendly squirrels, who instead of running away from you like the normal ones just come and climb you up to see what you have got in your hands (and of course if it's nuts they steal them).
The next day I would spend the afternoon in Porvoo, then return to Helsinki, spend the weekend with Tomi and Vera in a nearby town and back to Helsinki before leaving for Tallinn, so my Helsinki experience is all broken in small pieces. Hope they are enough...
