today & my friend Richart’s island =)

Today was quite okay … – I got up a little bit later than planned, as I’ve been last night again up until 2:30am. I first went to two Apple stores, but they told me, that I have to get in contact with the Apple support from Austria, to let my iPhone fix.
After this, I took the bus to the KONE main building in Helsinki – it’s the new and very beautiful building for the headmasters of KONE. Over there, I met Jaana and Iina, who already went there a bit earlier and went up the modern glass building with there very nice new elevators. There I helped out, building the staff folder and later worked on Jaana’s computer, to create the totally closed user account, I plan to  let the campers work with. To be honest, I was amazed, how easy you can close down all the functions in MS Windows. Even it took me some time, I actually expected, that it will take me few days, rather than few hours.
After returning in the afternoon, I worked a bit on the Internet and then went for a walk into the city to find a digital video camera. I already asked many friends and searched the Internet for quite a while … – in Finland itself, electronics are as well quite expansive – had at first quite troubles with to find something for around € 50,-
Have the feeling, that there are way less cheap options available on the market, than in Austria. I did some research in the Austrian Amazon store and was amazed by the price difference.
Somebody told me, he saw a cheap camera about € 50,- (which is build for YouTube videos) at the main railway station. I decided to  start my tour there and asked in a small electronics shop for it. The guy behind the desk was very friendly and told me the way to a better place. I walked for about 10 minutes and searched there, but the cheapest I could find was starting from € 173,- … for sure a nice camera, but to expansive, for my kind of use – it could always get lost or break on my far and sometimes crazy and hard way …
Again I asked and they recommended me a shop across the street. On my way to that shop I found two other ones, and the best price went down to € 139,- =P
At the end, I arrived in that shop, searched a bit and there it was! For € 50,- a very small camera, build for producing a YouTube video.
A very friendly shop employee, opened the glass box for me and we even opened one of the packages, as we searched for some technical information. There I saw this little sticker on the box of the camera, which told € 24,95 – reduced to half price! ^^ – just perfect !!! ;)
I bought it and just tried it out over here – the quality is great and it’s perfect for producing my planned YouTube clip! =)
Also uploading all my pictures from the DVD back to the computer finally worked today and so I can start to work on the 5296 pictures I’ve taken since Dallas, TX in the USA! =P
Only thing, which makes me worry at the moment is, that I haven’t heard anything from my girlfriend in a while – I hope it’s only once more the Internet connection in Guatemala …
Coming together with this post, I want to publish some nice pictures!

I’ve asked Richart, who I met on his own island at Isla Mjueres, if I’m allowed to publish some of the pictures of his island. I wrote quite a bit about him and his self build island, based on empty plastic bottles in the past posts. Richart is a great, very open mind person, nobody should miss to meet! =)

Don’t miss to check out his website:

Here are some pictures, to give you an idea, what I’m talking about:
