Tired feet

The verdict is in: we like Helsinki.
Our hotel is a converted prison (Katajanokka) situated on a small peninsula on southeastern tip of the city. It’s very accessible by tram and on foot.

The weather has been perfect. And we hope for some more days like this as we continue our trip.

The Helsinki orthodox cathedral was particularly spectacular with the bright blue sky as a backdrop.

I’ve had a revelation!!! I’m an absolute food junkie! Whether it be growing it, cooking, eating, markets, looking for good restaurants ….. And on it goes. Anyway, today’s market didn’t disappoint.

We walked and took trams all over the city.
