Hameentie, 14:40


I have come to Sörnainen for a real, face to face, meeting and I have over-estimated how long it will take to get here from home. I have arrived early. I therefore wander around to see what has changed since I last stood here in March.

I photograph the painted street box, which has an equally positive message for Dad on the other side.

I then wander down towards Hakaniemi for a while I notice that the upmarket sushi bar that opened in March has closed down. Presumably the major road works combined with the coronavirus pandemic to form an obstacle that the owners could not find a way round. The shops on either side have also closed down.

I walk down to the Sörkan Ruusu bar and meet Ilpo. Aga and then Oliver join us. We talk about Social Tools, and chat for the first time together since March. We make plans and then leave, promising to meet again.

I put another disposable face mask on before I enter the metro station.
