Every morning they set up shop and every afternoon take it down. As we left at 4:30 am for the airport, many vendors had already started construction. It is amazing what they do every day. The college girls running the shops were delightful. The food was excellent. The gifts were the best place to shop in Helsinki. Overall, I wish we had spent more time here and less time in places like Porvoo. This seemed more authentic than the other tourist traps.
