The Fire(work)s of Hel(sinki)!

Thursday night Helsinki held their big fireworks championships at the beach just next to our apartment in Toolo. It ended up being PERFECT for us. Not only are we on the highest (11th) floor of the building, our side window was just at the exact and only location of all the apartments in the building to have an unobstructed view of the fireworks! The big viewing area on our floor, and also the lounges on each floor, are all facing the wrong way and also blocked by the twin apartment tower being constructed next door! The streets and area are completely jam-packed with cars and people, helped along by the fact that it's currently Frosh Week for all the universities. Are we lucky or what?
