Pictures from Finland (I)

I’m posting a few pictures from Finland, as you have asked me.

The boat Minna’s father is building. It snowed last night, as you can see. Something hilarious: Minna’s father works for the municipality and drives a snow plough. He gets a phoncall whenever it snows, in the middle of the night even. So, last night, when his phone rang, the whole family knew it was snowing! It’s like having a direct line with the weather channel!

The center of Helsinki by night. People flying on ice skates.


Eatz. A sushi restaurant in the center. I loved it!

In the center.


The sea.


A street…


The subway is orange. What more can you ask of life? : )))

No pissing on our fence. That’s a sign on a house in our neighbourhood.


And last, but not least, me petting Pirka, out Guinee Pig. Please observe my blogger t-shirt : ))))) Minna took this picture.

More pictures to come. From the sauna, too. I did put a towel on for the photo shoot, though, don’t get too excited!

: ))))

    ah…nici nu iti imaginezi cat de mult te invidiez ca ai ocazia sa calatoresti, sa cunosti lume, sa vezi locuri, sa traiesti experiente, sa iti tesi vise, sa te bucuri de viata…poate ca iti e dor de casa, dar este o experienta fascinanta care sunt sigur ca iti va schimba (poate nu radical) modul de a gandi/simti. Si in plus te apreciez enorm pentru blogul asta, pentru stilul in care scrii si pentru ca esti originala fara sa fii comuna.Poate ar fi trebuit sa-ti spun chestiile astea intr-un mail, dar mi-era lene..si in plus da bine aici la user comments :DDD
    ps: inca o bila alba pentru campania de pr pe care o duci (poate si nevrand) pentru fjsc, bullet si cji! journalism rulez!
    pps: stii ce mi-ar placea (citeam despre materiile pe care le studiezi acolo)…daca intalnesti site-uri cu informatii interesante din ceea ce va mai predau aia acolo trimite-mi-le si mie.In special legate de new media, multimedia & cyberculture…msmsmsms!

    “In the center”… “downtown” adica, nu? :p
    Asta imi aduce aminte de “beating the fields” sau alte perle romglezesti 🙂
