Ah, Helsinki. I suddenly felt so relaxed and happy the moment I stepped off the train. Everything’s so clean and nice, and one can let one’s guard down a bit and not have to fear looking like a foreigner and getting pickpocketed or held at knifepoint. The main problem is the temptation to spend money. Everything looks so nice, and everything is so expensive. It costs a euro to pee at the train station.

About This Blog

I'm an American who started blogging when I moved to Russia in 2004. Eventually I moved to Sweden, where life is pleasant but uneventful, and stopped blogging for lack of interesting things to say. And then I joined Facebook, which further destroyed any motivation for blogging. Maybe someday I'll start blogging again, but for now, this blog is dormant, an archive of The Russia Years: 2004-2008.
