Park in Helsinki, Finland

NI2009, the 10th International Congress on Nursing Informatics, was held in Helsinki, Finland, from June 28 to July 1, 2009. The following three photos, taken June 30 with an iPhone, were taken during a conference dinner in a park not far from Helsinki’s famed Finlandia Hall.

Helsinki, like the rest of Finland, has a short, highly treasured summer. A relatively new city compared to other European capitals, Helsinki tries to squeeze every bit of enjoyment it can out of good weather and has extensive parks scattered throughout the city.
