more days with emi.

Emi left Helsinki early this morning - after the most wonderful 10 days together. I feel like a piece of me flew away with her - it must be the reason why I feel tired and ill.
memories and photographs of the last few days:
✻ at first I didn't like this photo booth - where my face looks incredibly round - but then I have started to love it - since it is of me and my sister together.
✻ for days it has felt like june again - just yesterday it started to look like autumn.
✻ we went to sell some clothes at Kallion Puistokirppis. I have managed to sell almost everything and I have also bought a gift for Jacopo: one of the most beautiful pencil cases I have ever seen - and the money went to the finnish animal association.
✻ we have managed to attend the workshop Eläimet Kylässä//Animals visting the City for Helsinki Juhlaviikot - where Jacopo and I prepared two eagle masks and Emi prepared a dancing seal. The seal was quite big - but she could carry it on the plane back home with her: that is why I adore Finnair.
✻ in Suomenlinna we had a pic nic with dear Maisa and Anne - my true friends. it was the first time for Emi on the island - she enjoyed it a lot and the day was warm and beautiful.
✻ yesterday - despite the autumnish weather - we eventually visited Korkeasaari zoo and we also managed to drop by Helsingin Kaupunki Museo in Hakasalmi Villa to see the exhibition Merelle.
I am so thankful for these beautiful ten days I have got to spend with my sister. I am going to miss her so much - since it was just so wonderful to have her around it is going to take me a lot of time to get used to Skype and text messages only. I cannot wait to see her again! ♡
