A new week, new things to do. Hope you all have a nice an enjoyable week. Need to post more food stuff, has been more home cooking and sports and less restaurants for now, but I need to eat and post about new cafes and restaurants as well.

Still dreaming of the Fuji X -series and would love to test the new Olympus Ep-5 and even more the EM-1. A new camera is definately needed, especially one that could be carried around more and also one that need be less pro and less intimidating than the Canon and Nikon dslr types. Not that I don’t still love them but for my current shots a small system would be best.

Cafe Torpanranta

Munkkiniemessä sijaitseva Cafe Torpanranta on yksi niitä mukavia kahviloita, joka sijaitsee juuri sopivan matkan päässä, että sinne on mukava mennä taukoilemaan ja lämmittelemään talvella ulkoillessa alueella.

Cafe Torpanranta is a nice place to visit when moving about in the Munkkiniemi region of Helsinki. I often visit it in the winter to get a warm drink and let my body warm before venturing onwards in the freezing air.

Torpanrannan edustalla on matonpesupaikka vielä, mutta senkin aika lienee siirtyä lähitulevaisuudessa historiaan.

Flash back in time, there is still a place for washing mats outside the cafe. As regulations get stricter these are slowly but inevitably disappearing.

Chailatte (vähän kuin lattekahvi mutta teetä) ja kaakao lämmittivät kylmettyneitä kulkijoita..

Chailatte, a specialty of the cafe and a regular hot chocolate warmed up the frozen visitors..

ja lihapasteijat antoivat energiaa jatkaa päivän tarpomisia.

and the meat pies gave up their warm energy.
