Helsinki, Day 1

The lamb shanks were delicious and made me wonder why I've never cooked lamb shanks. They came with delicious looking potatoes, which were kind of dry, so I really just finished the lamb and was full.

We were too busy to have lunch (though had a milk shake at Helsinki's McDonald's mid-day), but we went to Belge, a Belgian restaurant for dinner and I had the first of several beers on this trip--I hadn't had beer in years, but this Belgian beer tasted really good.

The hotel had a wonderful breakfast buffet every day and I started off my 3 days in Finland with cereal topped with yogurt and fresh berries, a piece of coffee cake, a mini donut and a glass of orange juice.
