Phoned Stadion Hostel and they had a vacancy for next few days so I reserved it. Checked out of Helka Hotel, but left my main back pack there, taking only my day pack with essentials. Walked several kilometes to hostel. Clean, comfortable dorm with nine beds. Reasonable price. about USD 18,. Paid with Visa. Just a little local walk about on Saturday.

Sunday as usual late start. To top of Olympic tower for fine view of entire city. Then walked to Sibelius monument in park. Very imaginative and impressive sculpture. Next to Rock church. Well done and interesting. Partially built into rock outcrop. Then back to hostel. Made supper there. and so to bed.

Monday. Walk past bay and old wooden mansions to downtown city center. Helsinki Cathedral, Uspenski Cathedral, Presidens building, many more. Late boat ride to old forification on island comples.

Had long fascinating illuminating conversation with Olga Zorina young Russiahn lady from St. Petersburg.
