Presidents palace in Tallin


At the market - Helsinki


Site for the Trump Putin Summit


Someone being interviewed about the summit




Just our luck! We arrive in Helsinki for four days and the place is going into lock-down just because Trump and Putin want to have a meeting here.

We arrived late yesterday afternoon and were met at the airport by increased security. We were able to get around ok today and had a good day exploring the main part of the city near the waterfront. The area was swarming with journalists and TV crews from around the world - CNN appeared to have the largest contingent. Tomorrow that whole area is going to be closed off. Our 14 day tour officially starts tomorrow so at this stage we don't know how that will go. We are to receive a briefing from the tour company later today at our welcome reception.
