As a feature of the Service Engineering and Management Summer School at the Helsinki University of Technology, the group was to convene at one of the city’s special places, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Unfortunately, on the evening before, I had left my camera in a restaurant in the Forum. Arja lives in the city, so she drove us back into town, and we walked from her place, to the Forum, and then across the city towards the harbour.
We unfortunately didn’t get much time to see the sights on the island.
I rarely get to Finland in good weather â€” school usually happens when the weather isn’t so great! â€” so maybe I’ll get another chance to tour Suomenlinna next fall.
