Friday afternoon bustle on the Aleksanterinkatu. Lots of folk moving to or from our capitals foremost department store called Stockmann. They have a special discount days from wednesday until sunday and it is always a huge hit, especially with the womenfolk. I tend to opt for the sweets and the food departments with a pop into the bookstore as well. Rarely anything else to buy for me at decent prices. IT would be lovely to buy a great discount suit for only 599 Euros, but thats still alotta cash for something bought on a whim.
