The People Of Helsinki


When travelling to other cities and walking around it is a fascinating experience to merely observe the denizens of that city. They do vary city to city. Factors such as age, smoking, fashion and quirkiness all define a city as being different from another. Helsinki is full of polite and very different people certainly from the UK and interestingly other Scandinavian and  Baltic capitals. In short a group of people fascinating to observe. Here are a few examples of the people of Helsinki.

    Miserable bunch! Maybe they looked in the mirror and wondered what an earth they were wearing. Hmmmm. Let’s hope they cheer up in time for the Euro Vision.
