Helsinki’s Senate Square (Senaatintori) is dominated by the white church overlooking the surrounding buildings and standing high up on a steep flight of stone steps. A couple of years ago, it was in June I think, I got to Helsinki very early. I flew in from Singapore. I walked to the center waiting for coffee shops to open. It was a bright sunny morning and I headed to Senaatintori. It was early. The square was quiet.
