Mishah's in Helsinki, attending a conference on typography. We communicate through text messaging, and here's his first impression of Finland:

And of Helsinki:
A big Vyborg without Russians.
My May 2004 text about Vyborg is here, on The Morning News site. More photos from that trip are here - for some reason, they've been stuck all this time on this other photo site of mine that I never use...
