The Finns and Nature

There's a lot of nature here in Finland. Even when I go to the bathroom in this hostel (I repeat the term hostel, I'm as shocked as you are, but it is a very good hostel for a hostel) birds tweet. Tweeting birds in the bathroom?! This is a soundtrack of course; the equivalent of bears shitting in the woods.
Meanwhile, I slip out and visit the Aalto. Aalto plays a soundtrack of nature too; every damn column and every ceiling, every line moving against every other line, every rocky outcrop treasured, every tree type matched in finishes. That we got reduced to soundtracks in bathrooms is a shame.
