Ranting about Finland

Finland is my country of birth.  I lived there as a child, teenager, young audlt and mid age adult. When I was 37 years old, I moved from Finland to Singapore. It happened in January 2002.  In September same year I came back with my  Singaporean fiance and married her there.  Then we flew back to Singapore and soon moved to Australia. I became Australian citizen in 2007, still maintaining my Finnish citizenship.  Then in 2012 I paid my next visit to my home country after almost 10 years of absence. It was really a positive experience.  After that I visited Finland every year for the next 5 years, but I also visited other countries during my European visit.

This video was made, audio spoken in English during my about 2.5 month visit in 2016. I came there from Ukraine and was going back there after 90 days of absence needed for visa free stay.

I am a father! Got my first child at the age of 56!

Yes, it finally happened. At first here is a video from Youtube. On it I speak both English and Finnish, and sometimes I just remain quiet, concentrating in traffic.

It is just a wonderful feeling holding your own child, being next to him, wathcing him, smelling his poop!

Eyes are the mirror of the soul 

My in  Oulu Finland in 1989.  I had already moved away but I was visiting my ex girlfriend who took the picture. 

Eyes are the windows to the soul. is another variant of this saying.  It was once told to me by a  Russian girl that I was kind of dating  when I was twenty-something.  She used it as a reason to reject me. My eyes were bad, hiding behind thick spectacles. Obviously she thought that my soul is as bad as my eyes.  As I remember, we didn't discuss this further, and we also did not break up totally but continued as friends for several years. 

Selfie during a morning walk with my dog in the highlands of Central Southern Vietnam.  I was recording a mohter's day message for my mother. 

Strong classes, cataract lenses of +10 or stronger, were  part of me since I was 3 years old until a few days before my 48th birthday I  got intra-coular lenses that were supposed to replace my spectacles. Not to improve my eyesight but just to replace the heavy and thick lenses of my spectacles on my nose.  

As a young adult  I wanted to have round classes and long hair.
