not scheluded -
helicopters return flight
from the waste sea

I still do remember those news...


Afterwards we got many refugees from Chile.

We found them very good people.

We still have many Chilean Wines to buy and drink. Quite popular here... Good wine.

Later we got some Vietnamese refugees, too. During that time (as today!) our government included some communist members!

When those Vietnamese refugees got a short info what Finland is, and they heard that we had some communists included in our government, someome tryed to jump out from the plane's window... :-)

Now some Vietnamese got a nice temple near us. Visited there a short time ago. Wonderful people!

Our PM is not at all a "leftist".

We also have another leftist party, social democrats, but many times they are quite far away from the occicial right side. (oops!)

Speaking politics -
a wise crow not flying
over the vast sea
