Back in Helsinki

I'm back in Helsinki this week for a series of meetings with the client that are going rather well. I'm in a different hotel this time and this one is just across the road from the Finnish National Opera (pictured). Despite the Art Deco feel to the opera house it is actually a fairly new building having been completed in 1993.

The opera house is set in a park that is bounded on one side by a lake (Finland has over 186,000 of them!) with a fountain in it. The path through the park takes you to the city centre, i.e. the railway station, in ten minutes. I went for a stroll there this evening taking advantage of the fact that it stays light until quite late at night to see some more of the city and to get some exercise before returning back to the hotel to make use of their free broadband connection.
