Overall, Punavuori is quite nice.
This year (and this past winter) construction and roadworks seem to have been going on non-stop everywhere! Way more than usual. Or maybe I’m becoming older and forgetting previous seasons.
Nothing like running across the bay from a large coal stack to remind ourselves that Helsinki is far from using clean energy everywhere.
I distinctly remember the ground being covered in snow during last year’s Independence Day.
If this were the capital of evil, the super evil secret lair would be quite easy to find.
I hadn’t been back in almost a decade, 8 years maybe. It’s strange how some things just cannot be forgotten – the neighbourhood I grew up in is ingrained in my memory forever, the parks, the kindergarten I went to (and the one I didn’t), the school I attended for less than a year (and that other school across the house).
