Mondays are still Mondays in Finland, i.e. they still last forever and involve a lot of coffee and yawning. So needless to say not much to report on today.

After work Dave and I decided to wander for chow in the opposite direction from our hotel that we usually go. This took us pretty far away without finding anyplace that looked worth having dinner at. We did find a bar to stop in and have a drink, but they didn't have much for food. As we were getting done with a beer the bar started to get hopping with bingo players. Yes, bingo. If we could've translated "B4" from Finnish we may have stayed. Later questioning confirned that bingo is not common in Finnish bars.

Continued wandering further from the hotel found us in a residential area. Then we spied a pub, or what we think was a pub. It ended up being a bar n' grill type of place where nobody spoke much English. They spoke enough to tell us that tonite's menu was "some kind of fish". That some kind of fish and a couple beers hit the spot. Even dive bars have great food here.
