Helsinki, Finland

2013 -Market Square We spent hours here making sure to see every craft store. There are some wonderful Finnish handicrafts here. We buy a couple of lovely wooden hats and a numbered print from a local artist of a reindeer . They did have many wonderful local crafts, reindeer antler bottle openers and wine corks. There are so many fur garments not able wear these anymore. There were lots of tourists who seem happy to wear minks and fox furs.

We were excited to eat this food here. So delicious! We had reindeer meat balls, served with little new potatoes and lots of nice cooked vegetables. We enjoyed our lunch.

We roamed around and bought lots of fruit from this market.

The next morning we finally got inside. It was worth the climb. Beautiful inside with dark colors and wonderful paintings and statues. Completed in 1868, it is reportedly the largest Orthodox Church in Western Europe.

We walked along the park and then we crossed the street to walk along this upscale road and do some window shopping. I especially loved taking a look at the 2000.00 euro hand bags at Louis Vuitton Store .But I don’t think I should buy these .
