International Staff Get-together
On Friday 3rd of June the department and the international well-being group invited the international staff to a picnic and a guided tour on Suomenlinna. With several bags filled with delicious food and drinks we started in the late afternoon towards the island, where we found a sunny spot to enjoy the warm weather, the good company and of course the food: from bread over vegetables and fruits to cheese, we had it all. Besides the about 10 international attendees, also our head of department, Esko Ukkonen, found the time to join us.
Also, check out the new English speaking blog at http://www.cs.helsinki.fi/en/blog.
After the refreshment our guided tour around Suomenlinna started. Although most of us have already visited the island, the guide told us many new and interesting facts about its history and battles. Those interested also had the chance to visit the Ehrensvärd museum.
A big thanks to Päivi Kuuppelomäki for organizing this great afternoon as well as to our department for the support!
