04.10.10 – I’m sure this will be the first of many similar posts about the shop windows of Helsinki. There are a number of interesting ones and they seem to pop up out of nowhere. I especially like the one above of the types of mushrooms. Mushroom picking is pretty big here. In my Finnish for Foreigners class, when we were learning different verb types, our instructor told us we “must” learn the verbs for fishing, hunting and mushroom picking because they are very popular in Finland. I’ve actually fished and picked mushrooms on previous trips to Finland but I have yet to hunt.
