4. "IMPRESSIONS & CONTRAST" Before arriving to Barcelona I was dreaming about warm weather, sun, new culture and of course partys. And yes, I have got them all! =) Everybody who had been in Barcelona before told me that I'm not coming back from there and is it the most beautiful city in the world. It is really beautiful and I want to visit here later too, but.. I have find myself many times thinking that I have started to respect more things back in Finland. I think it's a good thing! I see now many things that I haven't seen before. I have just heard foreign people talk about it, but I didn't understant before. For example. Many times I have heard foreign people saying in Finland that "You have so much space in here". WHAT? Now I understant what they meant. You can imagine now how it feels for me. There are only around 5 milion people in Finland! And specially in Lapland (where I live) there lives 2 persons per s.q km. Before I thought that I live middle of nowhere and that's a bad thing, but now I kind of miss it. WEIRD!! *laughs* I think all the people should spent some time abroad so you can see and feel the difference. For me this is the first time and it has had a big influence for me. My opinion: you can not understant it, you have to experience it by yourself! Janita
