Thanks to Laura for meeting me at the station; it’s always wonderful to be greeted by a friendly face. We dropped things off at the hotel and then went out for a drink and a bite to eat. More tomorrow: catching up on email and things today.

      The bizarre thing? I never saw *anyone* dining there!

    Angry Birds are all over here too. What a great franchise, even if it’s driving us all demented πŸ˜‰

      In the Sunday magazine for Helsingin Sanomat there was one of those one page profiles of the creator; considering how much money he has brought to Finland, I think people are happy. But shampoo?!

      And we play Angry Birds Star Wars and Bad Piggies here πŸ™‚
