Journal Entry:
Found an "Internet cafe" and got caught up on email. Also summerized my locations for the journal (I'll have to upload these full pages when I can). Found a student oriented (i.e. cheap) travel agent and bought a ticket for a flight from Copenhagen to Athens to Rhodes so I can go sailing in October. I also replaced my GPS which I aparently lost in Oslo. Basically I took care of a lot of little chores that had been saved up.

Afterwards it was time to hit the museums, but it was such a nice day that I couldn't motivate myself to go inside anymore. As dark fell the rain started.

After recharging by reading and taking a shower I went out on the town with a group of Estonian music students and teachers. Estonia only got it's independence back from Russia in 1991, so it was pretty amazing to talk to people who'd gone through it. I'd been thinking of visiting Estonia since it's only a short ferry ride from Helsinki, after talking with the students I'm even more interested.
