Ihana Cafe is now open in the Kalasatama harbour in uptown Helsinki, and well worth a visit. The new container cafe celebrated its opening party last week, blessed with a warm evening sun, hot air balloons and crowds of relaxed people enjoying one of the first warm summer evenings this year in Helsinki. The place is a welcome, refreshing oasis in the middle of the harbour’s large asphalt planes, and like a small piece of Berlin in Helsinki. It is like its name promises: ‘Ihana’ meaning wonderful, lovely, or fantastic in Finnish.
The cafe is built of two sea containers and a lawn, and it was proved to be a fun and safe place also for children, with its sandpits and huge pillows for sitting, and a nicely made fence that keeps children from running into water. The cafe is run by entrepreneur Sanni Jouhki, and it is open on sunny days, from wednesdays to sundays, 11-18 throughout the summer. The style with most of the materials from recycled sources, fits well in the rough but beautiful feel of the harbour. A brave concept, please do visit!

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
