O. k., we all know, that Santa is an invention of the Coca Cola Company... But I know a nice little story about Santa's hometown Korvatunuri deep in Finland. So let's start a challenge about the capital of Finland: Helsinki. Let us see your impressions of this nice town (I don't have a sample pic, but I think you have a lot of pictures....).

Just like all other Finns, Santa also takes the ferry to visit Helsinki's "sister city" Tallinn on the south shore of the Gulf of Finland. The ferry departs from the West Harbour on a blistery cold winter morning.
