Old and new in Helsinki, Finland – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day…”Life is an echo. Whatever you give, you get back. Love others and they will love you. Abuse others, and you will be abused. So behave yourself according to you”
” Time is like money. You should not spend it all in one place”.
A little work photo editing today to give a new photo an old look. The photo is of the main harbour in Helsinki, Finland, with the Uspenski Cathedral visible in the background (the black building visible behind the front of the ship). It is said that Finland has 1.8 million saunas, for a population of around 5.4 million people. Finland was the first country in the world to allow women to vote. Helsinki is also unusual in that it has more women than men, around 53% woman and 47% men. Another unusual fact is that the tap water is so good in Helsinki that it is bottled and sold to Saudi Arabia. The water reaches the city through the world’s longest rock tunnel. Finland also has the honour of being the biggest coffee drinkers per capita in the world, perhaps due to the long, dark and cold winter nights.
