one last picture from the clinic in the Children's Hospital of Helsinki. The whole gang with a demonstration of wood casts - totally biodegradable splint material made from spruce!
Here are Matt and Michelle in the cold, windy, beautiful North. My first purchase was a THICK wool scarf and some reindeer wool mittens.
Later that night 4/18/2012 we attended the opening ceremonies of the EPOS convention at the city hall. There we met many great European friends (and heroes). Here is EPOS president Prof. Rudiger Krauspe who welcomed us!
We also enjoyed a performance by local youngpeople in traditional garb with Finnish folkmusic.
After that we went off to a great dinner at a Greek restaurant (in Finland, what?) with a wonderful group - Thanks so much to Deborah Eastwood for dinner!
