We had a nice excercise in our sign language course: watch a short animation and sign a one minute summary of it.

Here's how I summarise the following animation: youtube.com/watch?v=07d2dXHYb9

I finally got my @languagetransfer guidebook on mail, yay! And some swag, too.

I'll see when I have time to read it properly, and then I can give a review.

This is my another bike. I started studying in another city last year, commuting there by train, so I bought a cheap-and-dirty second hand bike to ride from the station to the campus.

It is terrible to ride. It certainly won't take me to such long adventures that @pla was doing. But its name is 'Punasiipi', which is Finnish for 'Red Wing'. It's a workhorse all right, and it makes my days so much brighter.

Because that's what cycling really is about.

Imaged on the right is the whole centrum of the Netherland's fourth biggest city, including world's busiest cycleway and the NL:s busiest railway station.

Imaged on the left, just five kilometers from the location on the right, is basically just one intersection for cars.

The scale is same on both sides.

Although a Soviet cashmere cardigan and a Soviet woollen winter coat are probably overkill even here in post-arctic Finland, I couldn't help but buy them from a flea market today.

only a day late this time!

So, a Finnish company known for its traditional upper class style is now advertising oat milk with the following picture.

I'm not sure if they know what they're doing or if the ad agency is trolling them or what's happening here...

Did you know that in Finland you can take the L train to Esbo.
