By 2018, there will be 40 of these new trams in Helsinki.
During 2013 and 2014 they are just testing two of them. I already saw it in the city with the sentence “Tässä menee uusi spora” (Here it comes the new tram) in the side of the tram. But the delivery of the rest 40 trams will happen during 2015-2018.

This type of scam is typical to receive by email. But I was surprised to receive this by traditional post (to my Finnish address). The letter is from Rhofox Abogados (Toby Fellman) and he tries to convince me that I was the only beneficiary of a Spanish inheritance from some distant (and unknown) relative in Spain that has passed away.

I’m posting this online, just in case people is searching about these scammers.
I wrote an article on medium.com about Xylitol and Finland. Check it out.
I found out today this online service TiltShiftMaker that allow you to apply to your photos the Tilt-Shift effect. It’s awesome how it changes the pictures only manipulating the focus of the photographies. Give a try!, here is the result of one of my photos. You can see more examples here (good selection) and this flickr group.
