Maybe it’s part IIIb, or something. I forgot to add the picture to my post yesterday.
Or then maybe it really is a separate post.
What you see in the picture towards the left is Kauppatori, in the center of Helsinki. I took it pretty much from the porch of the Uzpenski cathedral.
Usually those trailing head and tail lights are pretty cliché, but I think this one is kind of From a Different Angle, which makes it that much more interesting.
There’s a market every day, six days a week. Mostly for tourists. All kinds of useless little things you can get there. There are (old) ladies sitting there and knitting hats and mittens. You can buy (over priced) reindeer hides, and other stuff you don’t need.
One good thing: always fresh fruit and vegetables. And that for a reasonable price.

Very much worth the visit, if only for a good cup of bad Finnish coffee in a heated market stand and to have a taste of the atmosphere on a cozy little market.

I’ll be gone for the weekend. Holidayweekend or weekendholiday. I think I deserve that after processing about 10,000 images in the past couple of weeks 😉
Back on Sunday eve. Or Monday… Have a good one!
