Gangs


Good news for my funky-party vein. The Tony Manero Foundation released their new album (read and listen). Making things even better my loved Javi drew a eight pages comic included in the CD. Money well spent!
Lo que faltaba p'alimentar la mio vena funky-festiva. La Fundación Toni Manero saca discu nuevu (llee y escucha). La cosa yá nun tien remediu si col CD vien un comic d'ocho páxines sobre pandilleros fechu pol fantásticu Javi. Perres mui bien gastaes!

Kiinalainen uusivuosi


Yesterday Helsinki celebrated the Chinese new year. Dances, music, shops and food. Everything packed (and crowded) on the square behind Lasipalatsi
Ayer celebrose l'añu nuevu Chino en Helsinki. Música, baile, tiendes y papeo. Too embutío (parecía hora punta na selmana negra) na plazuca detrás de Lasipalatsi

Tapando furacos - Filling gaps


Since I didn't have much blogging activity during 2004 - 2005, here you have some photos from June 2005. This is Tapola (Ypäjä), where Anne's family home is located. Here, we pick berries, have sauna in Juhannus day...

Cuidadín


Even though one can see plenty of people fishing close to our place, it may be not such a good idea. Due to the oscillations in temperature, in many places, the ice sheet is not thick enough to hold people's weight. The firemen had plenty of work rescuing people that fell into the water
Hai xente abondo pescando cerca de casa pero quizá nun ye mui buena idea. Colo irregular que ta siendo la temperatura esti iviernu, la capa de xelu nun ye siempre a tener pol pesu la xente. Estos díes los bomberos tienen mucho trabayu rescatando la peña que cae nel agua

Religulous

video
Religulous is a fun and interesting movie about religions. If one believes in the Holy Trinity... why not believing in Father Christmas as well?
Religulous ye una peli mui divertida y interesante sobre relixiones. Si unu cree na Santa Trinidá, por qué nun creer en Papá Noel también?
Podeis ver el trailer con subtítulos en Castellanu equí

Continuing with with my obsession on food-related films... last week I saw "Big Night", which I strongly recommend. Wonderful story about honesty, friendship and food

La "otra" Champions League


Yes, there are other sports besides football for the Finnish male. The European ice hockey champions league is reaching its end. The Finnish team Espoo Blues lost the semifinals to the Swiss ZSC Lions. The Swiss will play the final against the Russian team Metallurg Magnitogorsk
Nun solo de fútbol vive'l macho finés (voz de Rodriguez de la Fuente). La champions de hockey ta por finar. Esti vienres l'equipu finés Espoo Blues perdió en semis escontra l'equipu Suizu ZSC Lions. La final xugaránla los suizos con los rusos del Metallurg Magnitorsk

Skiing on artificial snow


The forest next to our place has plenty of paths for cross-country skiing. Unfortunately the snow is lacking so the city resorted to the solution below
El bosque al lláu de casa ta petáu de rutes pa esquiar de fondo. La pega ye que nun hai mucha nieve polo que l'ayuntamientu optó pola solución d'abaxu

Llimpiando'l conxelador


One of the advantages of living at high latitudes is that one doesn't need eating or throwing away all the freezer content before cleaning it. It's enough to move all the stuff to the balcony at -12 Celsius and put it back when it's ready
Una les ventaxes de vivir equí arribona ye que nun hai que comese o tirar lo qu'hai nelconxelador cuando lo hai que limpiar. Ye suficiente sacalo too al balcón (-12 graos) y metelo cuando acabes
