This is no Scandinavia

Helsinki railway station

Currently in Helsinki having a week of holiday. A friend of mine from Amsterdam just texted me telling that it is getting warmer and warmer. Well, not here. It was snowing yesterday. Cold and sludgy.

I realised once again that we are not part of Scandinavia. Our way of being and the way our cities look like is much closer to the Baltics or Russia.

I am not complaining, just stating it. I kind of like it. The amount of fur hats in Helsinki is quite amazing. I mean in April.

Oh, and I forgot to link my most recent column. Well, problem solved.
