Goodbye President Tarja Halonen – Welcome President Sauli Niinistö

Presidential Inauguration today on 1 March.

We were there when they arrived to the parliament house for the inauguration ceremony.  It was so kind of the elderly gentleman standing in front of me to, when he saw I had a camera, offer me to stay in front of him.  The arriving was over in about five minutes.  I would have liked to wait for them coming out from the parliament and to going down town to see them on the balcony of the Presidential Palace.  Leif got grumpy and tired and wanted to go. So home we went. We were back at home in time to watch the arrival at the Presidential Palace.

Visiting HEUREKA The Finnish Science Centre yesterday together with my husband and a group of about 90 other members of the “Veteraanimoottoripyöräklubi ry” A club for people interested in old motor bikes. HEUREKA opened in 1989 and I think we visited the centre right after the opening. I am not sure have I been there since.  Anyway, we had a great time there yesterday.  How nice to find out photographing is allowed there  so I shot a few pictures. Not easy to photograph as there were so many people.  The film,  A Journey To The Stars, we saw in the planetarium was very interesting. Only I had to close my eyes a couple of times as I felt like everything was spinning around.  I would have liked to watch The Rat Basket Ball but the last play was at 3:40 pm and we arrived at 4:00. Yup, was a nice afternoon 🙂
