Helsinki Samba Carnaval

Yesterday was a nice, sunny, warm, beautiful summer day. Perfect for the XXIII Helsinki Samba Carnaval. We were at the Senaatintori watching the presentation of the groups and gathering for the parade. It was a pleasure to see the dancers happily posing for pictures. A lot of tourists wanted to be photographed with the dancers.

Suddenly I heard someone behind saying my name. I turned, wow, there was a former colleague. I was quite amazed that she was able to recognize me from the behind after five years. Or on the other hand, why not, I’m still as short and fat. Anyway, it was nice seeing her even it was just for a quick hi. She looks exactly the same as then, as young and beautiful.

This time we didn’t stay for the parade as I wanted to hurry home to watch princess Madeleine’s wedding live on TV.
