The photo’s are taken during the ‘divers day’ in Turku. The first day, on Friday we made excursions to the new hospital in Turku to visit the hyperbaric center there. After that visit we went to the Ursuk diving suit factory. On Saturday we followed 3 lectures in the morning and following to that we dived in the harbor of the town Turku. At the end of the day it was the grand opening of a special exhibition on diving equipment as part of the Marine Forum museum in Turku. On Sunday we gave diving demonstrations and the same site in the harbor of Turku where a special children’s day was organized. Thanks to the Finish HDS for their invitation to join the 3 day event, and thanks for their great hospitality.
