Journal Entry:
Went to the Vasa Musee. An incredible museum that houses the Vasa, a ship that sunk in 1628 and was salvaged in 1961! The museum was just opened in 1990 and the exhibits are very well done.

Checked email again, this time it left me feeling vey home sick. I wonder if email is a good thing after all.

Rushed to the ferry to Helsinki. The boat (Silja Line Symphony)is basicaly a cruise ship. There's a casino, many resteraunts and bars, a disco, live entertainemnt, etc. Definitely the nicest ship I've ever been on. Wasn't feeling very social so I coughed up the extra and changed to a single cabin. It's much bigger than I expected.
