Helsinki trip 16-18th of December

I took very few pictures. I blame the rain and that I didn't want my camera to get wet.

Kiasma is the Museum of Modern Art in Helsinki. We huddled in their cafe in the rain. It has excellent service, if somewhat dull food and bad tea (though better than the hotel!)

The Ounce is a lovely tea shop where I spend way too much money (somewhere between 30 and 40e worth of tea in that bag - can't remember the exact sum). Pina Colada was a new acquaintance that I wish I had bought more of. The other new ones weren't so exciting. My favourite is Jasmin Baghdad, a blend of green and black with fruity (redcurrants at least - you can see the berries in the tea) overtones.

They stopped calling the biggest crisp bags "Megapussi" and switched to "Megabag" - probably tired of the jokes. My friend Kasha found this in a bar though. Minipussi!
