Can't believe it!

August 15 Monday 2011
Today we arrived if Finland by ferry. The ferry left Stockholm at 5:00 pm and arrived in Helsinki  at 10:00 then we met Juha and Heikki who daddy will be working with for the next 2 and a half months and we went to the apartment together the apartment wasn't ready until 2:00 so we went for lunch with Juha and Heikki. After lunch the apartment was ready so we explored there and we went downtown to Stockmanns. That is a 10 floor store with 8 floors and then -1 and -1a since we lost one of the European adapters in Stockholm some day we bought a new one there.

Today we went back downtown and looked around some more then we went to the main metro station to get bus passes but we needed photo ID to get the personalized pass and mom didn't bring it for us so we waited until tomorrow. We  also found a good gym so we also went there today and talked to our coach called Simir the gym is in a big sports complex at the far end in an enclosed area the doors are locked so people don't come and play around.

Today was daddy's 43rd birthday! and daddy went to work and Juha and Heikki gave him a University of Helsinki sweater. this afternoon we went to gym again. Then we had chocolate croissants for daddy's birthday dessert.
