Helsinki For Urban Travelers: 284th issue: The land of the thousand lakes

Helsinki For Urban Travelers: 284th issue: The land of the thousand lakes | Finland | Scoop.it
Finland is known for it's lakes. Thanks for the Ice age and Finland's geographic appereance. If you are arriving Finland with airplane, you'll be able to spot these lakes from air. I was arriving back to Finland and the sun was just setting. The seatbelt sign was on, so I didn't dare to take many pictures and the one I took didn't work out so well, but there you can see how lakes are really everywhere

Review
"Reading Between a Rock and Hard Place was a moving experience for me, as names and faces of people who were part of my childhood are not only placed in the historical context, but given respect and honour. The challenges facing the early immigrants are almost impossible to imagine, yet Oiva Saarinen has made them come alive -- a remarkable achievement in a historical text." -- Judy Erola, former minister of State for Mines (1980), minister responsible for the Status of Women (1982) and minister of Corporate and ConsumerA Affairs (1983)
