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.
A typical Helsinki couple. Element of distance between them but managing to look cool.
Cigarette and I Phone. A new Oasis song maybe?
Smoking was maybe more common than in other Baltic and Scandinavian countries
A very european image. Attention to the phone but not to where she is walking
A hard worker
Tourists on the edge
Tourists in their tourist uniforms. Maybe sometone told them Helsinki was freezing?
Far more cyclists than London
A hard working man
Finnish fashion may differ from other countries? Again attention to that phone .
The obligatory young persons uniform. Cigarette, headphones and phone. Just dont let the world in
I really have no comment here. What did he ask for at the hairdressers?
A very serious business this guarding
