Spring has officially arrived! May Day (or "Vappu", as it is in Finnish) is the true beginning of spring here. The weather was really sunny but chilly yesterday and several people were wearing gloves. Above you can see people wearing their student's hats and overpriced balloons for sale in the city centre.
Another proof that spring is here. This picture was taken last week and makes me feel optimistic, even in the face of the grey and rainy weather today! A good start into spring for everyone! :-)
