Mythical crow

Mythical crow

Crows are many times perceived as scavenger birds, smart but reckless. It wasn't until I came to Finland, where they are so common and living close to human habitat, when I started learning more about them.

Bush baby

Bush baby

Imagine being in the bush in Africa, late at night. You are in the pitch-black darkness where you hear the churring of night jars and a light wind moving through the flora. Combine that sound with loud wailing, like a human baby crying in distress. You have heard a bush baby.

What makes up African cuisine?

To use concept such "African cuisine" may not bring justice for the variety of dishes, preparation styles and cooking methods of different cultures and ethnic groups that together form the cuisine of the continent.

Walk to Finnhamn

Walk to Finnhamn

Gusty breeze and shrieks of seagulls, the definite signs of a seashore welcome us to the fishing harbour in Vikarskat in Björkö island. Here, behind the Kvarken Archipelago map and sign, and few steps backwards along the road we just came from, starts our walk to Finnhamn. Our destination is an old, rustic fishing cottage or sauna located on the cape pushing into Finnhamn like a narrow finger.
