Another fortnight has flown by and it’s my turn to host Friendly Friday again.
I had taken the day off from work today, thinking I’d have a nice day in the sun, go swimming at the (always crowded) public pool perhaps, and sit outside leisurely gathering my thoughts.
Unsurprisingly, the morning started with chilly rain. Whenever a day like this is planned ahead, the weather gods like to play a prank or two, I’ve noticed.
So I headed over to a café instead, one that I visited for the first time a couple of weeks ago when I met up with another blogger, Suvi. A pleasant meet-up and a beautiful jugend (art nouveau) style café.
Snuggled in a cozy leather armchair, back in a dark corner of the large hall that served as the seating area, I had a nice view of the place. There was a fresco above me and some delicate details carved in stone, there were arches and private little nooks.
Once again, I marveled at local architecture and design. The more I notice them all around me here in downtown Helsinki, the more I’ve come to love them. The details tell a story of their era.

Ps. As soon as I had decided not to go swimming, the sun came out again.
