Helsinki – Day 2

The second day in Helsinki was mainly catching up little bits of work and catching up with people back home. I went into Tapiola which is the closest town centre. Tapiola was interesting with some nice garden areas and a big pond that is an architectural centre point. The main area was a bunch of large department stores and apartment housing. Tapiola had a strange desolate eastern european feel to it. There were large expanses of concrete and white tile 70s style buildings and plaza areas that were in a state of disrepair and not many people around.
