Friday, August 19
I leap out of bed, brush my teeth even more fanatically than usual, wash, shave, dress, and jump on my bike. I have a dental check up.
I decide to leave the bike outside Prisma and walk to Oral in Tallininaukio. I get there, sit down, and watch as Tero races in seconds before my scheduled appointment.
He decides to do the small amount of actual dentistry needed at a later time, and so I find myself out in the square again sooner than I expected. I don’t seem to have a lot of companions here. The square looks almost deserted, except for two men who look as though they forgot to make it home last night.
I photograph the ice-cream stall before it opens and then walk through Itis, where only Espresso House seems open for business.
