the friends that i had in Finland
they did have saunas built into their homes :p
i know-- lucky huh? That would be so awesome, esp for relaxing with your tea

But I don't know the situation about showers and bathtubs
Maybe they don't have bathtubs, just shower and sauna
I forget what was told to me

or in the "quotes"one.

I'm in my university's library right now. I might steal away a few minutes to head down to the children's section. Haha. People will assume I'm an Elementary Ed. major but really, the children's books will be for myself.
