Water & Earth

by miimuska

November 22

What does water mean to me? It’s a very important question. Water is important to our health. We need about two liters of water every single day! We also need to wash up with warm water, because we are used to use warm water. But I think that we should take shorter showers and the same time we save some water.

Water can also produce electricity, it’s called by hydroelectric plant.

What about them who doesn’t have any water? I think that people should send more donations to countries where is a huge shortage of water. They could build a well in their villages that all the residents would get some water.

 

 We sould be happy that we get clean water!

Love, miia!

“My home town of Porvoo”

by argjirabudeci

This is my home town. Porvoo  is located in the south coast in Finland. The city has a population of 48 970.

The city is bilingual; 64.8 percent of the population is Finnish, Swedish 30.9 percent and 4.3 percent in other languages​​.

These houses are typical of houses in Porvoo and the colour red is too. 

Porvoo is very beuatiful place to visit in the summer and in the winter also. In the summers the sunset is  gorgeus and in the winter the Christmas tree and Christmas decorations are beautiful.

            

Now it is fall and the nature is beautiful the trees are in colors red, yellow and orange.

I hope that you all enjoy the  photos that i took 🙂

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!

Taking photos in our school.

by mimiia

Hello everybody! Last English Club lesson we took photos of our school. I took photos with my friends Marika and Miia T. I used my phone camera. Next week we will go by bus to center and take a lot of pictures, then I will take my good camera with me. Sometimes I will want to go somewhere little bit farther 🙂

Our school is a big and there are so many class room. Almost everybody at 9th grade come to school by moped or scooter or microcar.  I usually come to school with my friend’s scooter ride.
