A course in Helsinki

Greetings from Helsinki, Finland, where I'm running a Python course. After a late arrival last night and a busy course (10 bright delegates) I feel tired, but inquisitive enough to have a brief look around in the last light of day.



A modern city - this is the area I'm staying in, a couple of stops on the Metro from the town centre



And one of the few (?) older buildings - a city museum on the main central square, outside the railway station.

The maps shows water all around, and Finland is said to be very much a country of water; perhaps I'll get a chance to see some of that over the next couple of days ... or perhaps not, as a business and training trip is very much a business and training trip, and with the best will in the world any opportunities to explore new places much be looked upon as unexpected bonuses.
