When in Helsinki... just leave your infants in front of the restaurants in sub-zero temperatures. In the US, you would probably be arrested and put in jail and elsewhere in Europe, you'd at least be frowned upon and fear that some psycho could actually snatch your baby away. In Finland, however, you apparently them outside in the fresh air while you dine. The restaurant where I took this picture actually had 3 prams (2 of them vacant, to be honest) in front of the door when we left. At another, there was a coughing baby in the pram in front of the window (behind which I hope the mother sat), but I guess crisp air is better than restaurant fumes...
More about the AMAZING hotel where we stayed and my shopping exploits soon.
