At Oslo airport yesterday I picked up a glossy magazine printed for the passagers. It had quite an interesting article by a Norwegian. It was mainly about unpublished photos of the photographer who takes photos of Nobel Peace Laureates. One of them was the former Finnish president Martti Ahtisaari. But why did the writer think she knew how to spell his name, did she not know any Finns to ask. Spelling mistakes in both names: Marti Ahtissari. I must write to her.
I must repeat the former blog. It is New Year again! This time I am going to celebrate its coming by going to the Senate Square with thousands of other citizens, among whom, by the way, I have never yet to recognise any friends or relatives. There will be speeches, music, fireworks. Somebody wrote about sausages, will they be free? Next year Helsinki is going to be the Culture City of Europe. Also celebrating 200 years of existence!
There will also be special buildings lighted up, I have not yet been to see them.
