Everything you’ve wanted to know about Finland

Two Washington Post journalists are traveling in Finland for three weeks and writing a blog about their travels.

The first article posted before their actual trip has an excellent introduction to Finland and Finns. The article has some background information on Finland and a somewhat interesting email interview with a noted Finnish philosopher, Mr. Pekka Himanen.

While Mr. Himanen is, understandably, overstating the importance of “the three pillars” of modern Finland (Nokia, Linux and HIM), his answers are interesting and on point, mostly. They certainly are more interesting and accurate than some of the writings I’ve read about Finland, especially in travel guides.
