Last day in Helsinki

Today is my last day in Helsinki. Today is my first day in Berlin.

Being in Helsinki has taught me to:

Appreciate fine wine
Rediscover some friends whom I always had - distance truly makes the heart fonder
Make some new friends
Use chopsticks
Live in a country where English is not the first language
Move homes on my own
Discover Vintage
Be introduced to Opera
Be introduced to Burlesque
Be introduced to Ice Hockey
Get over my cricket fixation
Be a better cook
Appreciate fine graphic novels
Experience snow for the first time
Try out horse, reindeer and moose meat
Discover salami as a source of nourishment
Discover berries
Appreciate rye bread

I am looking forward to the lessons that Berlin will be teaching me.

Salami is a source of nourishment? And here I thought is was a source of paprika, fat, and sour stomach. ;o)

Have fun in Berlin.
