No fortune base shall ever alter me

Here are some more street views from Helsinki, photographs taken on October 23.

I forgot to note that yesterday was kekri, a feast day in ancient Finnish religion, "marking the end of the agricultural season and coinciding with the time when cattle were brought in from pasture for the winter". It is now end of autumn, start of winter - or should be, weather seems to be keeping rather warm.

For some reason the shops have been selling stuff for an American thing which I never can pronounce properly, "halogen" or something. There was a funny blog posting (in Finnish, here) of some Finnish kids trying to do trick-and-treating, and what they got was a satsuma - at least it was healthy.

(Posting title is from a poem by Sir Walter Ralegh.)
