    Thanks for sharing your Pori page. Finland has been on my list of places to visit soon. You're pictures and insight are great. I'd love to see that Fisherman's village.

    Great page and tips! It is nice that Northern Europe is so much into renewable energy as these windmills attest! Here, in Texas (W state...) they are hardly starting with these...But hey, where I live, houston, is the oil capital of the world!!!
