    Managed to not only not get here in real life but somehow missed this page too. Must say biking in Helsinki looks more inviting and scenic than any place else. ;> Great selection of beers too and Pyttipannu looks tasty after a night of drinking them!

    Actually, Oslo is a bigger village. Its name in Bulgarian is self-explanatory - Oselo = O'village in BG. Hahaha, and it is really a village, in the positive sense, of course.
