In June I basically tried to have vacation, quite successfully. One friend from Helsinki visited me in Tampere, because he never had been to Tampere before even after living five years in Finland. We went to Pyynikinäkötorni, a observation tower on a hill in a small woods, from where you can see all of Tampere. And we also went to the Lenin museum, which is located in Tampereen Työväen Teatteri (“The Proletarian Theatre of Tampere”). In the very same building Stalin and Lenin actually met for the first time ever in 1905, and in the very same building we also have our composition classes! The Lenin museum was also very eye-opening; how visionarism can end very dangerously and very wrong, because humans love to follow a leader who is full of passion for an idea, almost independent on the idea it self.

In the middle of June I spent about a week at my parents summer cottage on the island, relaxing and also there a few friends came out and visited me, sometimes even just for lunch as it’s not far away from Helsinki.
