So it's another 10 days that I didn't speak any voice here. Well, when the sky is blue, the sunshine is warm, even the
breeze is pleasantly cool, how could I get the nerves to sit in front of computer?! ;-)
Anyway, I just stayed in Helsinki during the Easter holidays. But it's quite nice. On Saturday we went to the central park near by Lansi Pasila to take some walk and deep breath from the early spring forest. Later we took tram 4 to its eastern end to the seaside between Helsinki and Espoo to see the (yet frozen) sea and had some coffee at a very cozy cafe Torpanranta and two big balls of ice cream from the nearby Valio stand. We missed to see the Easter Procession, which was surely a great pity. During the night we went to a student disco with Stacy and David, a night which reminded me of PSB's Jealousy. Another David had told me that he would rather not go dancing with his gf, and vice versa for her, for they can't get relaxed. But for me it's never my way to know people in these night places, and I always feel extremely uneasy and just want to get out of there as soon as possible. I only feel comfortable when being with (very good) friends.
The next day we went to Seurasaari
. (finally... I bet I may be the last foreign students who hasn't been there.) I should come here again after mid May to see the open air musuem. There's also an ice cream stand of INGMAN, had two huge
ice cream when entering the island and waiting for the bus to go home. I was terribly exhausted after walking around the island, I was very sorry but had to cancel the dinner party (that everyone brings a dish) at David's flat.
Yesterday one of Ye's friend Wu Tie, who just came back from China last Thur, came to see him finally. Inevitable, SARS has been a big topic between us, and maybe out of fear, even became kind of our joke. Anyway we went to Liu Qiang's place to have dinner and watch Hero (the third time!)
