It's a girl

...or actually will be. Public health care is good but can be very basic sometimes. So in order to find out if it is a girl or a boy and if everything is really alright (we are first time parents, we worry, ok?) we or rather my girlfriend did (well I was present in the room) a 4-d ultrasound in a private clinic. So it's a girl and everything is alright. We even have a 20 minute video and a 3d picture in color. But since my girlfriend already has posted that picture in her secret blog I'm not putting it up here. You'll have to wait three months ;-).

Back at work

My vacation is over and I'm back at work, at Midsummer. Vacation was great, we spent the last week camping. We traveled trough eastern Finland and spent a few days in Helsinki. It's been a few years since I've been in Helsinki, unless you count Helsinki-Vantaa Airport.

Helsinki is in Finland but it's a whole different world from the rest of the country. It's a great city to visit and a lot cleaner and safer than most cities I've visited(Edinburgh is still number one) but I wouldn't want to live there. It's tuned to a different beat than the rest of the country, faster and prettier. It's more cosmopolitan than rest of Finland but it also lacks something that can only be found outside Kehä 3.
