הארץ המובטחת

January 4, 2011

Or ha-Aretz ha-Muvtachat (The Promised Land).

Many of you have probably heard a bit about my recent obsession with Finland. And for those of you who haven’t, but know me well enough, you’ll know that these things tend to come and go with me. I get really interested in something for a period of time, then lose interest after awhile. That trait can be interpreted as a bad thing, but since it’s more-or-less unavoidable, I try to make the best of it. For example, I see no harm in becoming really interested in say, a particular chemical process, learning all about it, then moving on. The experience and knowledge I’m left with at the end undoubtedly exceeds that which I have not pursuing the interest at all. In short, I follow my heart, man!

Right now, my heart seems to be leading me to Finland. I have a number of reasons why I’ve recently become interested in Finland, but in the interest of not boring you (har har!) I’ll leave them out of this post. I’d be more than happy to divulge them if you wanted to talk about it out-of-band though.

I haven’t actually been to Finland yet, though… That brings me to my next point. I have a flight booked to Helsinki for this weekend. I’m going to be couch surfing with a seemingly nice Chinese exchange student/axe murderer (I’m not sure about the second part).

I’m really excited to finally make it there! Check in mid next week for a debriefing and outsider’s review of Helsinki.
