In Stockmann's

The Stockmann department store in Helsinki is supposedly the largest department store in the Nordic countries, and it's after the title of largest in Europe. Naturally for such a large store, there is a large food department.

We went down to that food department to look around. At one point, we found the area for soft drinks. I noted a palette of stacked San Pellegrino sparkling mineral water. I looked further, and noted with approval that there was basically no still bottled water to be found.

Finnish tap water is that good.

But then they take care that it is.
