It's all about the people… germans looking over the tellerrand

about rock’n'church, books and finnish food

I've been a bit lazy for the last two days, so that there's a lot of stuff to write today. on monday we've been to the helsink-city-tour. maria, atte and werneri showed us all that tourist stuff... mainly a lot statues, churches and storys about helsinkis short or not so short history - according to their diffrent point of views about that ;-)

of course we've been to the finnish parliament - which looks to us germans like it has popped right out of the german 1930s to us. also totaly impressive is the temppeliaukio-curch a church build into granite. even so it was discussed quite controverse during it was build - it is one of the calmest, beautifulest and peacefulest churches I ever saw in my life. nowerdays they even have heavy-metal-services in this church - so much for calm and peaceful... ;-)

also impressive but way not that cool was the lutheran cathedral and the main-station wich do look more like a castle (like a lot of buildings here in helsinki).

while strawling through heslsinkis wide spread underground-shopping-malls we've also been to a roleplaying-shop. even if they had a whole lotta nice stuff and an impressive plush-cthulhu-bagpack, the latex-boffer-weapons they had have been so last-millenium - they looked like the bad ones we had in germany in the 1990s. thank god there is at least one thing we do not have to be jealous about...

there also have been realy crappy things here in finland. they a far faster here in faster here in diggin' out the 1980s fashion sins... my OPP-field has been realy stressed during the day. the climax has been a shopwindow, displaying one of those realy bad 1980s dresses, looking like a way to long t-shirt with a elastic-band wich holds the end of the s(k)hirt up so that it looks like a bell - and all this in a late 1970s-pattern...

to finish this finnish-tour we've been to a "real" finnish restaurant eating "real" finnish food - I had mashed potatoes and reindeer (or has it been elk) - I'm not able to devide them propperly, everything I know is:

"moose is some reindeer kind of elk"
