aw, screw helsinki

I really didn’t get that many good photos, what with the strep and all, so let’s move back to Kiev. Helsinki seems like a really great town, and I’m looking forward to going back sometime when I can leave my little bacterial friends at home.

So there is this little blue building I pass by on my way to work. I’ve always wondered what was inside, on the two or three occasions the door was open, it looked like either a thrift store that only carried paper, a record store, or a post office. Lots of stacks of “stuff” and a very unfriendly looking old guy which kept me from going in to explore.

About a week or so ago, I noticed that it’s being torn down. Sadness. I always liked the bright blue building with it’s little illustrations on the windows.


and now I guess I’ll never know what it was. Whenever I asked anyone, they just shrugged as if I were the only one who could even see this building.

    Briana, you’ll know what it was, who were those people you asked about lovely blue building? you’d better asked me, oh i know you hate me so much… anyway, i’ll tell you. Just look at the picture with a pot, don’t you think it’s pretty strange painting for a post office? If only you were not from the wild west you could guess at once this pot is the only proper place to store HONEY! Yes it was honey store. amazing please where you could buy million sorts of honey and also stuff for bee-keeping, and all that papers were special literature for beer-keeper. I liked just papers most of all because i always has feeling it’s a kind of village antique-shop or second-hand bookshop.
