As i finnaly arrived i was supposed to meet Chris - who's had to bring me home - the problem was - we've never seen each other, but obviously Ola (my polish friend who's living in Finnland) has shown him my pic so that he could recognise me getting off the train.
So, as i got off, i was looking for a person, who's looking for a unknown person as well hahaha - and we couldn't miss us, hahha two lost guys standing at the platform looking for some strangers hahaha every one has already gone home and the train left. It was doubtless who is who at this empty station;)
We got home and finnaly after some 5 years or so i met Ola again (we chatted often of course but now was it in real life)!

I was told it's because of the alcohol poblem here in northern countries (u know, long nights, less sun light, cold, snow 'all the time' ;) hahaha).
But it's ok. I don't complain any more hahaha
