This week, before the cold (that already took down M) got me, I had some days to do a little sightseeing around Turku. If you haven't already checked Nopsa Travels - a travel agency specializing in local travels - I highly recommend it!

They have the same ideology I had in mind when doing mini travel guides earlier this year. And also, the idea we have for the travel guide to the neighbourhoods in Turku, which will be published early 2012. The book is written by Elina Teerjoki, who keeps lovely Hopeapeili-blog - have a look at her unique style!

Another reason for going around the town is a photo exhibition I'm working on together with the residents of Varissuo suburb. For the past week or two, we've been going through hundreds of slides from 1970's - 80's, from the time the suburb was being built. And after that, seeing & documenting the places, houses and parks in condition they are at the moment. The exhibition is part of the Light Festival in Varissuo and will be opened in the end of October.
