The world gets more crazy. Apparently, the Brightwater Wastewater Treatment centre (which is called a sewage works to you and me), near Seattle, USA is now promoting itself as the perfect place for weddings. Advertising on its Facebook page, it lists the things that it can offer for your perfect wedding….lots of parking, dance floor and full catering. Renting the sewage works costs USD 2000 for 8 hours. Apparently, there is no smell.
A photo from the Finnish capital of Helsinki for the photo today. It started as a colour photo, but was then converted to black and white and then finally to Sepia, to give it an old look. On the skyline is the Lutheran cathedaral, and below that on the left is the Helsinki town hall. Much of the centre of Helsinki Iincluding the Lutheran Cathedral) was designed by the German architect, Engel and has a Russian style. Indeed, parts of Helsinki look so much like Russia that in the 1970s and 1980s it was used as a copy of Russia when making films. With faster trains to Russia now, then there are many more Russian visitors, as well as day trippers from Sweden who arrive on the overnight ferries.
