Thought for the day…..” To fail to prepare is to prepare to fail”
A photo from the harbourside market in Helsinki for the photo today. Nice comparison between the real face and the plastic models. Even in the depths of winter (when temperatures can easily fall to below minus 20 degrees C) and when the nearby sea is frozen, the harbourside market is still there. Finland is number one in the world for coffee consumption per capita, perhaps helped by the long, cold winters. Around the harbour in winter, people sit for coffee in heated tents, and occasionally fish through the ice using a saw. In the depths of winter, daylight is scarce (around 5 hours, although it remains gloomy all day) but around the middle of June, it is light almost 24 hours a day.
And one from the archive……sunset over the Baltic Sea.
