Flew into Helsinki to arrive at 2pm. The airport was very quiet, intensely quiet. We got the train to the city and a tram to our hotel with all our luggage. An old man on the tram with a kind face laughed and talked with us in Finnish.
We went out to the Christmas markets and wandered around, we went back to the hotel and asleep my 7:30pm.
The Christmas lights are very beautiful. It feels right to be in Europe in winter for Christmas.
