Helsinki, Finland, 2010

Our third stop was Helsinki. I think I saw less of this city than the previous two. We took a bus from the ship into the city and started walking. This we did for more than a few hours. Ladies walking in a nice park, a drunk sleeping it off, a very appetizing food market by the harbor, Russian female athletes shopping at the market, and some architecture from a very old stone church that proved less than it was touted to be. A "must-see" said the travel books. We also took a boat ride out to one of the nearby islands. A nice excursion but meh....For me, Helsinki was underwhelming but, to be fair, another casualty of the cruise.
