Hi Rekarte, I remember seeing some of your not-so-complimentary comments about Oslo a few weeks back in another thread. I would be curious to know how you would compare Helsinki and Oslo?

It's still early and almost summer but the shallow angle sunsets are one the better things about Helsinki. I like that. Much of the world is closer to the equator. One can get a little bit of that also in central europe but not as much.
