    World War II

    Salpalinja, or Salpa Line, is a 1200 km long WW2 era defense line in Eastern Finland. These pictures were taken from Virolahti Bunker Museum.

    What's the weather like where you are?

    It has been sunny and warm for weeks now. I don't even remember the last time it rained.

    The Racing Thread

    Season as a whole has been good, but Monaco was boring as usual. Next stop: Montreal. Should be better.

    Good race in Bahrain, Vettel wins again. Bottas was really close, couple of laps more and he probably would have passed. One of Ferrari's crew members was hurt during Kimi's second pit stop. Broke two bones from his leg. It's amazing how Ferrari always manages to ruin Kimi's race.

    That's the orthodox church, really beautiful from the inside, too. Here's a picture from few years ago: Nice pics, by the way. We still have 30 centimetres of snow, so no flowers here

    Vettel wins. He was very lucky with the virtual safety car. Hamilton 2nd, Räikkönen 3rd.

    ^ Let's hope for the best and fear for the worst. Ferrari's and Red Bull's race pace looked good in the practices... but so did Mercedes

    Mercedes looks strong again. Halo safety system changes the visual look of the cars a bit:

    Ouch, Bottas crashes in the qualifying. He will probably start at the back of the grid.

    Thanks, LedZed66. Walking/skiing in forest is really relaxing, except when it's full of mosquitoes Next series of photos were taken last weekend in the small coastal town of Hamina. I'll post some more later. First, the beautiful old town hall:

    Actually these were taken right after sunset. There's moon in the second picture. It's quite magical when it's clear skies and the moonlight is reflecting from the snow. Imagine skiing or walking in a snowy forest in this blue light, almost complete silence around you... amazing experience. Happy days indeed!

    Thanks. Looks like it's pretty cold everywhere in Europe. I was just checking out the sports news and it said they couldn't drive the F1 tests in Spain because of the snow.

Today Finland is one of the most technologically advanced, equal, safest, cleanest and overall best countries in the world. So congratulations to Finland and all of my fellow Finns! Let's make the next 100 years even better!
