I caught the 6T tram from Arcada, and got off it in Frederikinkatu to wait for the 3. And here it comes.
Rain has fallen more or less all day and it has got harder as the afternoon has worn on. When I get to the British Embassy the security guard will let me stand indoors until Irma arrives.
We will chat with Tom and Maisa about the anti-American demonstration that has caused the police to close the road to traffic. Irma will claim to have counted fifty demonstrators and I will suspect she has over-estimated.
We will meet Sonja Crockford, Tom’s cake-making daughter. Later, we will look at The Art of Cakes, the website where she details the extraordinary cakes she has made.
