    helsinki is a cool place, but i would like to visit it when there's more than 6.5 hr of daylight and not so cold. that said, today was about the only cold day really (19F, 6F windchill). the people are pretty nice, the food is great, the women are very attractive and i managed to see soundtrack of our lives last night at some club. nice one!

    i hope the monkey hasn't missed me too much. ;)

    ps - finnish keyboards have fun symbols like § ¤ € ö ä Å ¨

    Look, if you can't take pictures, then nobody cares.

    Please delete this thread.





    ;) Hope you're taking lots of other pictures, anyway, to share when you get back!

    N8, since you are a fearless lensman unduly affected by being rude to complete strangers, please post the best photos of this kind you have taken.

    BV, i will have some photos up in a few days. i've probably taken 50 or so, so hopefully there will be some good ones.

    All the Scandanavian countries have women who are almost un-human in the beauty dept. It must be all that hard liqor and meth.

    :think:



    I just remebered a terrible yet brilliant pun a bandmate said while we were on tour in Stockholm. He thought of this off the top of his head while eating a pastry for breakfast. (said in a cheesy Scandanavian accent):

    "Man, dehrz Nor-way I can Finnish dis Danish, it's too Sveet-ish."

    :rolleyes:
