any Mefites in Helsinki?

a passenger died of a heart attack on my flight to helsinki and we got diverted to stockholm for emergency first aid beyond what the crew and passengers could do. to no avail but with the delays and all, I've missed my appointments for the day today (a one day seminar/field trip that has already begun) and have the evening open in case there are any mefites willing to meet someone who doesn't feel like sitting alone in their hotel room pondering the dangers of flying?

email me using the address given in my profile please or I'll keep checking this thread. thank you

you could temporarily change the location in your profile to Helsinki - this would then show if there's any Mefites nearby

hope you have a good night

that's a good idea, I will try that

but actually found a former student now working for nokia who has offered to take me out for dinner with his family

the world is very smal

thank you, btw

Would have loved to go out but unfortunately saw this too late... Hope you had fun!

Congratulations, mullingitover! You've won my contest of 'I'm Gonna Open This Helsinki Meetup Thread To See Who Can't Resist Mentioning Architecture In Reference To Some Boring Band'! There is no prize.

... and please don't take it personally - I promise to hold contests of a similar nature the next time there're meetups in Boston, Chicago, Kansas, or Asia.

And thank you keijo for lunch and and very interesting conversation. I'd say the first ever Helsinki Mefi meetup was a success!
