If you love Helsinki and view it through loving, interested and hopeful eyes, it too will love you and present all its loveliest buildings, small cafés smelling of cinnamon rolls, special boutiques, flea markets bursting with treasures, summer canopy kiosks, parks full of fragrant flower arrangements, rocky shorelines, adventure islands, lively block parties, free concerts. All that is beautiful, unique and interesting, so that everyone can find what is important to them. It will smile and smell differently to you than to someone who does not love it, who sees and thinks of Helsinki only as a big, scary concrete suburb with too many people and where you don’t dare or want to go anywhere. There are lots of these kinds of people living here, those who have not opened their eyes, hearts and souls to all that is unique surrounding them. What a loss for them.
