  2.  I have shared accomadation with four clowns in Swaziland (you will here about them later on so keep following).
  3.  A friend let me to drive a car owned by his friend during a rush hour in Mbabane. I had never before been driving on left-hand traffic.
  4.  I have nearly been in Ethiopia. We had to change flights at Addis Ababa airport on our way to Zambia.

  11.  And finally: I love Italian food.

And then here are my answers to Toolan’s questions:

  1. What did you feel when you are informed you got nominated for the award? I was surprised and flattered.
  2. What is the best achievement you can have in your life? In future? Well I guess the best achievement would be a life well lived. A life that I can be happy about.
  3. Do you play any musical instrument? If yes, what instrument?    I don’t. I’m not a musical person. Though I might be able to play a tambourine because I have sense of rythm.
  4.  How do you value life? I value it very high. Mine and others.
  5. What country do you want to spend your life? Oh… I can’t choose just one… I would love to share every year in my life between Finland, Swaziland and Italy. And of course travel a little bit in other countries too.
  6. Do you believe in reincarnation? No I don’t. I believe in afterlife.
  7. What is the best blog (not post) you saw? This one is difficult. I haven’t been reading many blogs. There is one blog that I have been admiring because I consider the writer is a brave person. Unfortunately he stopped writing that blog three years ago.
  8. Do you like history? Yes. I’ve always been a fond of it.
  9. When the last time you went to church? It was last week. I work in a church and I’m on a holiday this week. But if you ment a service or a mass then it was two weeks ago.
  10. Do you believe that aliens really exist? No.
