Last weekend saw the presidential election (2nd round) and a mountain top barbecue (-20˚celsius). Herttoniemi, Helsinki.

The Liepaja–Ventspils narrow gauge railroad had been out of operation already for decades. In 2011 the wooden rail sleepers from Kapsede region were removed. Being hazardous waste, EU support was granted for shipping them to Sweden for safe processing.
