Doesn't sound good, but your situation is better than mine anyway. In order 
for me to see the Oils in Sunny Helsinki (tm), they'd first have to come to 
a place such as Göteborg/Gothenburg or somewhere near it - only after that 
would it be possible to see them here. And it's not too likely since no-one 
wants to waste several days of an international tour to cross the sea just 
to get here. One too many conditions to match I think.
