While In Finland, the guys and I planned to celebrate Philippine Independence Day weekend in Helsinki only to find out that June 12 is also Helsinki Day. And the Finns in Helsinki have a 'peculiar' way of celebrating Helsinki Day. They do it dancing the Samba. We felt disoriented at first. Here we were in a Scandinavian country but the sounds and colors felt more like we were in Brazil.
This is part four of my video-journal of my first trip to Europe together with 3 other Filipino doctors taking Global Health at the University of Tampere.
