Photo of the Day Sunday 9th December 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell
Thought for the day…” Remember, when money talks it drowns out all other voices.”
Staying in Scandinavia for the photo,but to the Finnish capital of Helsinki. Helsinki has some interesting architecture, including some Russian style buildings (indeed parts of the city have been used as a stand-in for film scenes set in Russia). There are said to be 187 888 lakes in Finland and also 179, 584 islands. Also unusual is that YLE, the Finnish broadcasting company, sends news in the Latin language. Finland is the least sparsely populated country in the European Union, with only 16 inhabitants per square kilometre.
