Flag of Finland  ,
Monday, October 22, 2007

Arrived safe and sound in Finland after an interesting ferry trip.  A very comfortable way to travel but I must add that the Finns aren't the type for queuing.  It's free for all when it comes to stuff like that.  Got some good photos of the sunset over the Gulf of Finland as well.
 
Anyway, Helsinki is another interesting city...only this time a bit cooler than continental Europe.  The main attraction is the Helsinki Cathedral, a monster of a white building with onion shaped roofing; there was also a nice market down by the harbour.
And not forgetting a rather strange rock church with a glass dome...something different for a Sunday morning adventure.  We're off to St Petersburg tonight on an overnight bus, so I'll let you know how the Russian border controls compares to crossing into Zimbabwe or Mozam.......
