Re: [council] REMINDER RSVP Helsinki Informal Council dinner Tuesday 28 June at 18:30 EEST
Getting from the meeting venue to the ferry will take
15-20 min by public transport, or 25 min walking (30 min
if taking the slightly scenic route that goes through
the central station, and past the university main
buildings and the historical administrative centre
around Senate Square - but we probably get to see that
on Monday, as the City Hall is in the same area).
