I woke up today to go to work in total disbelief that we are already in our second week here in Helsinki. The time passed so fast but at the same time I feel so comfortable walking around the city. I feel like I have been here for quite a while, although the feeling of excitement is still in the air. More over, the sad feeling of knowing there's only two weeks left is never far from my thoughts...
I believe Helsinki makes people feel this way. It is so easy to get around: the buses, trains and trams are all connected by an app called Reittiopas, which is user friendly and there's also free WiFi all over the city. It's so welcoming to be here, not only by the people who are great and very friendly but by the city and the way it was planned.
My week began with lots of responsibilities. Last week I was asked to create a poster for the next months workshop, but now I am in charge of making this months one too, which is fantastic because I get to plan, draw and paint. The comics society is being a great place to learn about comics and it is very inspiring. I have been drawing comic stripes almost every day and I know I won't stop anytime soon.
And just to top up my wonderful creative day, it's snowing all day, it makes the most beautiful scenery.
