Water

by valtsusworlds

Water is to me a way of life. I use it everyday of my life, my life depends on it. I can`t  imagine how empty my life would be without water. My life would change tragically. I don`t know how to describe the feeling what people for example in Africa have. They can`t use water as much as they want, what is not nice. The politicians have the hardest question, how to use water less and how to exploit it ? That question is not simple but here are my thoughts on it. We all have to use water less in shower, human spends water 50 liters every time you go in to shower and that is way too much. I think that all mankind who have lot of water should donate more water to places where people don`t have that much water.

Hope you enjoy this text!

The City of “Castle River”

by Jazzy

An ordinary red wooden house. 🙂

Once upon a time, back in 1800’s there was a small city located in Southern Finland. The city was called Castle River. The name of the city is a direct translation of its Swedish name “Borgå”.
The people of Castle River were very ordinary but also very determinate and strong.

They managed together the cold winter nights by holding boiled potatoes inside their robes. They took care of their livestock in their small back yard to survive the cold winters when there was no green food available. But there was bad sides in the summers as well. When the winter was over, it was summer again and there was a bigger risk for their wooden houses to get on fire and burn down the whole town. And that happened very often, but as I mentioned these people were very determinate and they never give up building their homes again and again. So life back then wasn’t so easy…


Nowadays this Castle River is called Porvoo. Porvoo is of course a lot bigger and very much more modern… But once again, these people have been so intelligent that they didn’t destroy the visual parts of the history of this town like many other countries have done to their historical cities. We have a part of Porvoo that is called “Old Porvoo”. And it really takes you back in history but in a typical way. Culture lives forever in the Old Town.
There are many little boutiques that are crowded with people every summer. Kids usually buy ice cream from ice cream stands and just enjoy the warm atmosphere while adults go to the “boring” boutiques. But one thing you should remember is to not leave  the little child alone into the big crowd!!

I took some pictures of the Old Porvoo last week, so here they are! I hope you like them. 🙂

An ice cream stand where I definitely love to buy a chocolate ice cream in hot summer days.

Such a foggy day!

The Miracle of the Fall

by Jazzy

This summer has gone by so FAST! Tomorrow we’ll get to do our first exam of the year >>> math’s exam. I still recall the hot summer days by the beach or the warm summer nights enjoying the sunset by the waterfront. Ahhh… Why are summer vacations so short in Finland? I’m already kinda feeling like I need more of vacation.

But it is always fun to move into the colors of the fall. Finnish fall is so beautiful specially for its sunrises. Sun rises pretty late here compared to other countries. But it doesn’t bother me because I get to enjoy my walk to school. And the other good thing about fall is that nights here aren’t like tea time in other Southern countries. Fall is probably the only season that is totally balanced. I just L-L-L-Love ittt!  In my listings, spring has the 2nd place instead of 1st because it’s  much like summer.
But Fall is different. Fall is unique. In Fall everything living gets ready to go to sleep. But still all the fantastic colors keep reminding us of the love and warmth we’ve received from the nature.
All the orange, red, yellow, brown colors in the trees are a message for us humans.

“It’s time for us to rest. But don’t be sorry. For it’s time for joy. We’ll be back even sooner that you think. And we will be younger, greener and fresher. We are just like Phoenix. The only difference is that we reborn with cold, And Phoenixes with fire.
‘Til the next spring, Take care. “
