I just sent the manuscript off for its edit! I am glad to be done but sorry to see it go.
I have become very fond of this nation, with its inscrutable proverbs. And besides, Finland has some of the quirkiest fun facts. Here's a favorite:
Some experts estimate that there are 77 billion--give or take a few million--trees in Finland that are at least 4 feet (1.3 m) tall.
77 billion trees
5.3 million people
2.8 million saunas
24 pounds (11 kilograms) of coffee drunk per person every year (about 5 cups a day)
6 world champion rally race car drivers
1 Heavy Metal Eurovision Song Winner
Also, did you know that in Finland you have the right to pick wild berries? Yes. And wild mushrooms too.
And now, the Netherlands.
