|During Restaurant Day (see related posts under this tag) the third official stop was in front of the White Church, on Senate Square, at the one-day-only Yurt Café.
By this point my fingertips were starting to seriously worry me, I had given up even the thought of using my camera because the battery was flat dead in two minutes in the cold and, really, this yurt and the soup could not have been better placed on my route. Okie, so in full disclosure, it was my intent to stop by there from the start and I had mapped out the places to visit beforehand but I had not taken the -25C and the humidity into account and telling it this way makes it sound a little bit more adventurous.
Oh, and there was a design ice sculpture competition going on at the same time “next door” on Senate Square. Part of the whole Helsinki World Design Capital 2012. (How exciting is that, Helsinki World Design Capital 2012 and Marseille Europe Culture Capital 2013!)
Not pea soup but rather lentil soup.
The toilet thing reminded me of that clay happening thing I took part in a couple of years ago. I had tried to make a bidet but there were some people who had made toilets. Now that I think about it, I don’t know what’s worse from an intellectual point of view, making a statue of a bidet or of a toilet.
