I hope to go to Finland someday. Two of my favorite bands, Steve ‘n’ Seagulls and Moonsorrow are from there. And I read that most people in Finland slept in cardboard boxes as babies. Because the government gives the family of every new baby a kit, which includes diapers, a little baby suit, a baby blanket, vitamins or milk formula or something, and the box for a crib. They started that in the 1930s or something, to help every baby get the basics for a good start. Pretty smart and cool, no?
Also Finland has the highest literacy rate in Europe or the world, highest math scores, or something similar that I can’t recall. And they’re the most physically affectionate people in Europe, as far as touching each other goes. That could be good or bad I suppose, depending on what you’re used to. Anyway, I’d like to visit someday.
