1. O… how sweet it is!

    Residency permit… check.

    Social security number… check.

    Unlimited travel for 90 days in Helsinki for less than $1.50/day? Check.

    Now I just need a bank account and a job. Once I am registered with the social fund Kela (application is pending) I’ll be able to visit a doctor and dentist in short order. For a little bit of nothing. 

    Like it should be living in a civilized nation.

    Oh- and I’m meeting with urban farmers on Friday. Going to discuss their plans, where I can help, and perhaps how I can start a garden in a place that is almost perfect for growing.
