Helsinki, Day Three
Wednesday, August 30, 2006
Another day of hotel inspections. The one that appealed to me the most is the Hotel Klaus K. Just opened this year, the hotel is artsy, chic, and features three totally different themed restaurants. Check the link for more information about the place. If you're into staying at boutique hotels, I highly recommend it.

Tomorrow, I leave the city to visit Porvoo. It's a medieval town, so it should be interesting.

Fourth observation: Everyone looks like that go to Mystic Tan, if they have a tan. I noticed this in Stockholm, as well. It must be a Scandinavian trait. Or maybe they really are going to Mystic Tan. I doubt it though.

    Was it named after Klaus Kinski?

    That would be cool if it was, but it's not. Here's info from the tourist board site.

    "The hotel, previously well-known as Klaus Kurki (a character from the Finnish national epic, The Kalevala, references to which have been included in the interior decorations and dining themes) . . ."

    What I find particularly interesting is the observation that countries with little to no sunsine generally contain the highest proportion of the population trying to look tan. I've been out here in England for a while, and the idea of sunshine for a full day is non-existent. And yet, I go to town and there are these tan little teenaged chicks everywhere wearing those horrendous skinny jeans, and I have to ask--how? Then, people who show up here from Mediterranean countries react very negatively to the whole lack of sunshine thing--they completely wash out.

    Hey, it's a pasty country, in more than one way. We may as well get used to it.
