At some point of writing a blog I have realized that it is viewed by people from different countries. About most of them I have learned only from geographic books. Must be cool to learn about them from those living there! Could you send me a post-card with a landmark from your city and a short story about it? I promise to answer to every post-card I get! I will put them on the wall in my room, so it will look nicer.
Here is my address:
Pekankatu 5D 047
00700 Helsinki, Finland
Here we go! First one from Prague! Nice card with a good story behind it. Kind of unexpected:)'
P.S. My dear friend from Prague, if you are reading this, send me one more card:)
Ok, here we come with pictures from the welcoming party for THE CUP. 16 years! WOW! No wonder everybody was going crazy about this special guest. To start with, it was crowded and it took me some effort to get close to the stage. Yes, I am that tall guy with a camera in my hand steping on your toes, pushing from behind, swearing back if needed. But..but I said "Sorry!":))) And those tiny girls standing behind me, sorry that you had problems seing what was going on on the stage because of me. Hope you like pictures!
Small groups heading to the PLACE
Sorry guys, I had to step on your toes and push forward:)
Half of Finland was here...I wish Finland was of Luxemburg size, it would have been easier...
I liked the idea. Guys hand-made improvised cup. Well done! Looks so real:))) kidding
Heard a comment from one guy to his friend: "hey, wawe the flag and I will fing us on the screen!"
And that what happened. Everybody was waving their flags.Guy said:"Shit, we should have taken swedish flag, it is easier to notice..."
That guy manage to get to the stage! Bastard:)))
Big brother is watching you. But seriously I didn't know it could be real...well I heard the invented CD already..so everything could be possible nowadays.
What is a point to come as close tho the screen as possible and watch everything from the screen?:)
Ok, party started!
Yes, I noticed you:)

One thing: don't smoke inside the crowd! It smells bad, it is dangerous and it wakes Hulk inside me!

"I see you pink crocodiles!"
After these two pics I realized how much I don't like TV-guys..Step a side, dude!
It started to rain, little bit, but than Lapland shamans fixed that.
