December Sat 1st & Sat 8th

On Saturday 1st we went to Porvoo/Borgå for the third time this year. This time to the Opening of Christmas in Old Porvoo event. It was very nice. The day was sunny and not too cold. The square was packed with people.

Yesterday, Sat 8th, we went to Helsinki/Helsingfors. The plan was to visit three different events. It was a gray day with light drizzle when we left from home. At first we visited the new Helsinki Central Library Oodi which opened on Dec. 6th. There was a lot of people. I tripped right at the entrance ! So embarrasing !

Next we walked to the “Narinkkatori” where the Coca-Cola Christmas truck was on display for the first time in Finland. Despite the rain pouring down there were a lot of people.

Then a visit to the newly opened Amos Rex Art Museum. Oh my, oh my ! The line seemed endless. We were already soaking wet and decided to visit the museum at an other time.

    Oh, 2 of these places are also on my list: Oodi and Amos Rex! Can’t wait to visit them on my winter holiday!

    Beautiful pictures of Porvoo square! I didn’t even know about the Coca Cola truck, but looks very nice and bright there! 😊

      Thank you 🙂 The Old Town Hall nowadays is a museum. It’s long time since we visited it so next time we go there we will visit both it and also other museums in Porvoo.
