Finland and Liberia's Female Presidents

I have taken on a couple rush geography book projects--rewrites of Finland and then the Netherlands--both due before Christmas. So, that's my autumn set. I'm a bit sad to set aside my personal work (blogging, filmmaking, lazing), but these jobs pay money (!). And Finland especially interests me. (Mortmere? Help?)
Here's one of the first photos I discovered:

Is here. Will try helping. (Chronic failure with putting words together, though...)

Hooray! No need to put words together, just help with lists (famous people, sights to see)--and all purely optional, of course. I'll e-mail you!

Abdoulaye Wade! I have a Senegalese cousin!

Perhaps you had slave-trading or missionary ancestors, Ms. Wade? : )
