Friday, June 12
I have had my annual dental checkup, which involved much jocularity with Tero.
I step out of the building where Oral occupies the fifth floor into Tallinninaukio, where the sun has brought out the early morning drinkers. Someone slides passed me as I step out, on their way to somewhere only they can see.
Halfway towards Itis I turn round and look at the play area and the metro.
I will walk through the mall and out onto the street. Burger King and McDonalds now serve more than takeaways. Half of their seating remains taped over, and sealed off. The other half (every other table) stands waiting for customers.
