Helsinki, Finland

I was ramblin’ around in Helsinki for the whole weekend. On Saturday I did some records shops to look for the original Finnish Tango music. I found what I sought, nice records from Maria Kalaniemi, Lasse Santakankaan Yhtye, Olavi Virta, Reijo Taipale and many others. Here you can hear a typical tango of Reijo Taipale.
On Sunday I was walking around admiring the nice buildings and monuments. I also visited the harbour (did a little boat excursion). A the end of the day
I crawled along the Esplanade and stopped at the statue of the Finnish national poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg. Great man, this Runeberg, the national poet of Finland who wrote in Swedish, and also exercised a great influence on Swedish literature. He wrote very nice poems, like this one:

Who has given the wind wisdom,
Lent the air a tongue so lightsome,
Ready speech to the yard's rowan,
And the small birds' tender bevy?

Think about it... while you listen to Reijo Taipale.
