Say goodbye to February
It´s the end of february today!
I had a great weekend. The consert turned out really enjoyable and meeting my friend after so many years, well, it didn´t really feel all that long ago...He no longer lives in Helsinki, he has a large family (four kids!) now and a huuuuuge house in the countryside. He gave me a lift home and we decided to attend another consert soon. Looking forward to that!
Yesterday I made a short visit to Berlin in the 20´s, I saw Kabaree Berlin, a charming cabaret at Kapsäkki. I was very charmed by Greta and the little acrobat, lovely songs from the 20´s...I could have stayed longer!
Above is a photgraph by my friend Jim O'Donnell. It´s taken in Macedonia. I had it framed with a vintage frame and cropped the image slightly with a passepartout.
All the earning from the photography sales will go to help fund the Haiti Re-Forestation project that Jim is involved with.

Please take a look at his his wonderful photography and if you want to help, please visit the store.
A little note to my previous post. I hope none of you found my commenting on the critical american couple as prejudiced. I know americans are said to be slightly arrogant, well, I´ve always tried not to take these claims too serious. There are arrogant people amongst all nationalities. I don´t fit the descriptions of a typical finn. I´m very often asked where I come from. And so are many of my friends and family. So I suppose if we limit ourselves to think only according to a certain stereotype we will not see far.
I was about to leave out the nationality of the funny critical couple from my previous post, but that would have made me sensor myself and I would be prejudiced!
I have dear american friends whom could never be described as arrogant!
