Over New Year

It’s the second day of the new year, and I’m feeling human again after yesterday’s tiredness. Here are some photos and a quick description of our new year.

On New Year’s Eve, Eve & I went for a walk round Töölönlahti, planning to meet Mari & Erik at Cafe Tintin Tango.

One thing that always catches my eye is how the low sun gives everything shadows, even the grains of gravel that they spread on the icy paths.

Mari & Erik got to Tintin Tango first and told us the cafe was full, so we went instead for a late lunch at Ravintola Kuu. Then I went out for a walk by myself, stopping at Kappeli’s café to think and write in my journal.

In the evening Mari & Erik came to our place and we played a game of Guillotine before going off to Géraldine’s party. It was a fun and lively party with a few familiar faces, and after midnight we went across the street to the Rose Garden night club – a very trendy place with labyrinthine cellar rooms and lots of cool twenty-somethings.

Around 2am we left Rose Garden and went via our place to join the end of Marika’s party – a nicely mellow and cosy atmosphere for ending the evening. We finally got home around 5am.

On New Year’s Day, we slept. In the evening Jyjy joined us for some fine hangover food – mashed potatoes and hand-made organic pork sausages from Hakaniemen halli.
