There are places that you forget fast and others that change you for ever.

The Helsinki Central Railway Station, designed by Eliel Saarinen, has left its mark on numerous passengers and passers-by. In this image it is captured on a sunny Tuesday afternoon in April 2021.

According to WikiArquitectura "the station, classified as Art Nouveau, contains many features that would later define the Modernist Art Deco approach applied in particular to US stations such as Cincinnati, Buffalo, Newark and Los Angeles."

Hi everyone, I am looking for someone who can translate English pages in Finnish. It comes with salary, MP Thanks
Found this great little snippet of Helsinki on YouTube - reminds me of my trip there a couple of years ago!
Greetings, My name is Fotini Maria Platzer and here's my story. Please give it a shot, you may help me find my father's whereabouts. I am born in 1995, currently almost 26 years old. Born and raised in a small region of Greece, called Epirus. My mother's lineage is half Greek- half German, and my father is from Finland. The two of them met back in 1994 in an island of Greece, at the Ionian Sea, called Corfu. My mother was working there and my father was in the United Nation's peacekeeping military forces, which were sent at Bosnia in that period. They met at summer in Corfu and they spent a few days together. She recalls only a few things : that he was approximately 20 to 23 years old, with blonde hair and blue eyes, he was also wearing glasses. As i foretold, he departed a few days later with his own vehicle, all the way back to Finland. She also recalls his first name , which is Petri and the last digits of the car number, which are 474. He obviously doesn't know that my mother was pregnant, he doesn't know nothing about me. So do I . But for all my life I was so eager to try finding him. That's my personal quest. Whoever has any clue or information that can help me in this quest of mine, by any means I would be thrilled to know. I would gladly accept any intel via message. I have my hopes up. Thank you all in advance. Sincerely, Fotini Maria Platzer
