Huuhkaja

[Disable Flash Gallery]

Visiting Helsinki last week was a very pleasant experience. Meeting friends, seeing a lot of art and the beatiful city. Pictures from gallery “Sinne”, outside “Kiasma”, pub tram, eagle owl chicks.

A big bonus was when I discovered that Helsinki has it’s own special population of Eagle owls in the centre of the city. The chicks were easily visible from the streets and has become mascots of the city.

I’m not much of a football fan but this would make a match more interesting for me (Finland – Belgium, 2008):

I especially enjoy the part at 2:12 when the Finnish supporters start shouting “huuhkaja” (Finnish for Eagle Owl).
