Can you believe September is already here? How swiftly the days go by!
Sadly I got sick with cold and ended up spending a good week plus some bedridden. On the positive side, I watched a lot of old movies, including Boris Karloff/Frankenstein and Fritz Lang marathons, and did a lot of reading on the history of film to prepare for university. I'm moving to London in just a few week's time - eeeep!
A couple of days back, on my first healthy day in what felt like ages, Minna and I ventured to Amurin Helmi, our favorite cafe in Tampere. It is located in an old worker's housing quarter in Amuri. Amuri's history dates back to the founding of Tampere in 1779. It is a wonderful cafe filled with nostalgia and tangible pieces of history - and the best pancake and Karelian pastry in the city! If you ever end up Tampere, Amurin Helmi is definitely one of the places that I'd warmly recommend visiting.
