Hi Jarkko,
I'm very pleased to go to the beautiful Finland! As you know I arrive Saturday night to Turku, so I can do just the Sunday programs. Please count on me ;-) And thank you again for your priceless collaboration. Szilvia

Two men from the east (we are going to spend both 1st and 2nd of September in Helsinki). I'll try to gather some more Russian-speakers later.

And many many thanks for all the work you're doing for us, Mr Arjatsalo!

I might be joining, but I can't promise.
I'll probably arrive to Helsinki on the 2nd, in case I'll be in town in time for any activities then count me it :)

Me and my wife will arrive in Helsinki either on Friday (31st of August) or on Saturday (1st of September). So we might want to join. Before confirming our participation we have one big decision to make. We are probably taking the kids along to our trip to Helsinki. Their grandma is also coming and will enjoy their company during the concert. The big decision is that do we have the heart to be apart from our children two consecutive nights.

So we might join or we might not :)

We often take our children with us! They are now not quite as young as when they first came with us to Hydra - and, a few years ago they came to Krakow with us and loved every minute of it. Depending on how young they are, I would suggest you take them with you!

Thanks for organizing, Jarkko :-) I will arrive Saturday afternoon, so I will probably miss the walking tour? But count me in for the other meet ups.

My flight is due to arrive just after 2.00 pm on Sept 1st so I won't be able to make a walking tour on Saturday afternoon either. However it will be nice to meet up with everyone on Saturday evening and I am looking to seeing something of the city on Sunday.

There will be an Art Exhibition of Leonard Cohen (more than 50 of his art prints) at the Porvoo Art Factory.
The exhibition will be open daily except Mondays from August 31 to September 23.
Adam Cohen will perform at the opening night on August 30, and some Finnish artists will play LC's songs.
Porvoo is an old idyllic city near Helsinki (30 min by bus).
I will post more information soon.

We could organize a group trip to Porvoo on Saturday morning, September 1, for members who have
arrived in Helsinki. For Saturday evening we are looking for a nice restaurant in Helsinki.

Jarkko - will it be possible for those of us who will arrive in Helsinki a little later on Saturday to get to the art exhibition on e.g. Sunday morning?

Absolutely. I will give some travel hints. The organizers also promised to keep It open for cohenites on Monday, if there are several who'd be interested and cannot make it on Sat nor Sun.

We are arriving in Helsinki on Saturday morning. Can you give some more information about timing?..

Anyway, this is a brilliant idea. Thanks a lot, Jarkko!

I am waiting for the press release of the Art Exhibit - the organizers promised to send it today. It will certainly include the opening times etc. There are bus connections to Porvoo every 15 or 30 minutes, so this will not be a problem. I will come back with details as soon as possible. I will also ask all who want to join us at the Saturday night dinner to email me. We need to know how big group we will have.
