  1. This makes me remember my one important culinary experience in Helsinki last year. There is an ancient, probably quite ancient dish called: „ Vorschmack“. I stumbled upon it in a cookbook which was an east german translation of a russian antropologist who wrote about the different cuisines in the then Soviet union and their history. It intrigued me, because it is a german word and I thought, might be an old jewish recipe whose name survived in the russian language. I read and tried to find out more, and yes, I was right. And there was a restaurant in Helsinki where Vorschmack was on the regular menue!! And I decided to go there and, once in my lifetime, to experience the taste of Vorschmack. ( It is quite difficult to cook at home, for my abilities, at last..) . So I went there and I knew in an instant that I walked into a very expensive restaurant, the air smelled rich and of lobster, and everything. It made me poorer, but I ordered the Vorschmack and something else as the main dish I donˋt remember. Everything was rich, and there was much cream and I had a hard time eating everything,😄 . So yes, I had a hard time with this meal as well😄. But ok, now I know how Vorschmack tastes like. I wonˋ t ever eat it again, not to my taste, I do not like herring, but so what! I will never forget this evening, will never forget Worlds at Helsinki for many reasons..😊. I hope I was not rambling too much, but there is no other place I can tell my Helsinki— moments like here...😊. Many greetings, and may everything agree with everyone at Helsinki 2018!😊😊 ... being able to taste some Vorschmack was like a dream come true..as was Worlds...😊
  2. So no wonder then.. I hope we will have a planet meeting in Helsinki? I would love to meet. I met some of you last year, but I was so nervous I forgot names for the faces I remember... And I am very curious to watch a gp event. I only went to two world championships so far. And I am so happy now to experience a different kind of competition. I imagine it to be smaller, more intimate?? Looking very much forward to it.
  3. ...and yes, I got the „ watching figure skating live“ — bug. The atmosphere, the skaters, it gets me, just being there.
  4. ...I have my tickets, I have my flight, and today I went to my travel agents to book my hotel,room. It is a very nice woman working there, and she just called me: she does not understand what is happening in Helsinki at the end of October, room prices were going up every hour😄. So I told her WHAT is happening, and that people from all over the world are coming to Helsinki. I am so happy😊. I was in Helsinki last year and went to Milan and got pneumonia there, but loved it nonetheless, and I thought I would never again have the chance to watch Yuzuru Hanyu live. And now: yes!!!! 😊😊😊😊

    It just came to me: the Belgian team looks fast and elegant when attacking. Now who does this remind me of??
