    It's OK. Nobody is perfect. lol
    Why did you live in Switzerland? You find it too organized and predictable there but I hear the same stuff about Austria.

    That's why I want to go to Helsinki LOL. Austria sure is no third world country but compared to Switzerland Austria is chaotic.

    I once had friends who lived in Helsinki. They said that people would avoid eye contact at all costs. Sounds like a shiite place.

    Being here suburbs of Helsinki, my only worry in the very cold we had over the weekend was if car started (it did!)... I only play tennis in the winter nowadays (no time in the summer really, and getting adjusted takes time...)... but we have great indoor courts. No problem playing in -25C when it's 20C inside on the court. :) The outdoor courts, well, they are closed, they take the nets off etc. So basically there's the May-Aug outdoor season and then the rest of the year indoors. As a kid, I only did the summer season (played daily), now clay courts don't really call me anymore...

    Sounds like I'd fit in there, although their winters are brutal so that wouldn't be a good fit for me. I need it to be over 60 Fahrenheit everyday, otherwise I'll have a rough time.
