Yesterday I went out for a walk at about 6:00 o’clock pm. I saw a woman with her dog. They both were staring at something in our neighbor’s garden. She said look a fox. She was right. The fox was staring back at us. I slowly took my phone from the pocket and shot three photos. I was not sure I would be able to use any of them. Then I continued my, about 2 km, walk. I thought, maybe the fox still will be there when I return. He was gone.
Last Saturday the line to the new Amos Rex Art Museum was very long. As it was raining and we already were soaking wet we decided to postpone our visit there. On Wednesday the weather was great and went to visited it. The line was much shorter but still it took us 30 minutes in line.
This is what it says about it on Wikipedia:
“Massles, the first exhibition at the Amos Rex museum, is made by the Japanese collective teamLab. It consists of an immersive interactive art exhibition rich of colours and leaded by creativity. The viewers are encouraged to interact and explore with the surroundings giving rise to different results.”
It was different, interesting. Visitor’s drawings of crocodiles, lizards, butterflies, parrots, flowers flying, crawling, mowing, floating around all over.
A few snapshots at the The Helsinki International Christmas Market on the way to the car.
On Saturday 1st we went to Porvoo/Borgå for the third time this year. This time to the Opening of Christmas in Old Porvoo event. It was very nice. The day was sunny and not too cold. The square was packed with people.
Yesterday, Sat 8th, we went to Helsinki/Helsingfors. The plan was to visit three different events. It was a gray day with light drizzle when we left from home. At first we visited the new Helsinki Central Library Oodi which opened on Dec. 6th. There was a lot of people. I tripped right at the entrance ! So embarrasing !
Next we walked to the “Narinkkatori” where the Coca-Cola Christmas truck was on display for the first time in Finland. Despite the rain pouring down there were a lot of people.
Then a visit to the newly opened Amos Rex Art Museum. Oh my, oh my ! The line seemed endless. We were already soaking wet and decided to visit the museum at an other time.
I saw him sleep and went to grab my phone then sneaked back to take a photo. Of course he woke 🙂This is cropped from the above photo.
