Tuesday in Helsinki





My friend A is spending the day in Helsinki, so I am soon about to meet her for lunch. Can't wait to meet her again, we last met in the autumn when she last visited. Now she is only here for the day.


Above is an antique map of Helsinki, from approx. 1850. Sounds grand, but it is not worth anything as it has been glued onto cardboard and it has been torn at the bottom. I picked it up for a fiver from an antiquarian at the last bookfair in Helsinki. But for me those matters do not matter, I find it very charming and beautiful indeed.
