One of my favourite places in Helsinki

One of the best places to have a cup of tea or a glass of cold cider.
One of my favourite places in the summertime in Helsinki, former lightship Relandersgrund, now a fine little cafe/bar. It's open whenever the weather is nice. 
And it happens to be just around the corner from where i live, how nice!

In good company. That's Baawo.

 I'm having a cup of "laivapojan lempi" (translates "shipmates love" or something like that...)

 Shoes are important.

 Can't really complain about the view.

 The sea.

Found my wedding ring!

"Gimmel ring. 1600-50, Europe. Gold enamel set with diamond and semi precious stone. The hand mechanism twists to unlock and the ring collapses into three interlocking bands"

10 Books That Saved Your Life

Compartment C, Car 293 (Edward Hopper, 1938)

I was reading this blog and there were these lists of lifesaving books. The idea came from a website where artists from different fields can list songs that saved their lives.
The idea sounds like fun, so i made a list of books myself. First i thought that it would be hard to list only 10 books, but actually it was hard to deside which books were really lifesavers.
(It would be cool to say that "yeah, a villain shot me but luckily i had Umberto Ecos The Name of the Rose in my pocket that stopped the bullet and saved me.)
So, this is a list of books that saved my life and/or made a huge impact on me.

-Lähdettyäsi (lovepoems from 6th century China) - Translated into Finnish by Pertti Nieminen
-Matkalla niityn yli - Lassi Nummi (My favourite poet)
-The Master and Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov
-Good Morning, Midnight - Jean Rhys
-Hullunkurinen lintukirja ("the crazy bird book") - Mauri Kunnas
-Naiv.Super - Erlend Loe
-Hanhiemon satuaarre ( a wonderful book of fairytales, lovely illutrations by Feodor Rojankovski)
-Kun Miinus lähti avaraan maailmaan (Minus and the great wide world) - Sven Nordqvist
-The Winter Queen (original titel Azazel) - Boris Akunin
-The Lady of the Camellias - Alexandre Dumas

To that list i could ad all kinds of travel guides, atlas and everything by Agatha Christie (except 'The Big Four').
Reading is fun!
