Suomenlinna-1995

Up



     Batmud's mud convention held in Suomenlinna, 17 June 1995, Finland

Following pictures were taken by Quadra and Arakorni and other members of this
expedition party that invaded the beautiful island fortress a mile south of
the City of Helsinki. The weather was (as you can see from the pictures) was
very sunny yet pretty windy. A perfect day to make the picnic.

                        were hiding outside the picture, but anyways here's
                        most of us.

                        white t-shirt, Mapmaker and Quadra. This shot was

                        see some of the old barracks that were used when
                        the island had more military purposes than nowadays.

                        Here is a scanned map image and the route has been
                        drawn to the map where the boat goes.

hydrofoi.jpg            A hydrofoil ship going to Tallinn, Estonia. The
                        traffic to Estonia has been pretty popular from
                        Helsinki, it takes about 2 hours with the fast ship.

map_zoob.jpg            From left to right: zoob, mapmaker and two unknown
                        guys. Mapmaker is trying obviously to summon something.

                        still sail in Finland. One of them.

slinna1.jpg             Picture taken from the ferry going to Suomenlinna.


We spent the day in the fortress island, then continued to Helsinki and various
bars... It's sad that we don't have all the pictures and people recognized,
but, life is tough.
