Hietaniemenkatu 20, 00100 Helsinki, Finland
I didn't know what to except heading to the cemetery, but I should have anticipated a wall surrounding it. Eventually, we found the entrance, and I was pleasantly surprised by the view in front of me. The headstones and rocks were covered in a green lichen (a powdery-type algae). While this probably isn't good for the headstones, to me, it added to the forest atmosphere I was feeling when I walked inside.

Angkor Wat in Cambodia, but even without the physical evidence from the time, it's fascinating to imagine what the place was like in ancient times.

Innopolis, Tatarstan, Russia
I've had the pictures in this post queued for a very long time. I, honestly, didn't know how to make it into a real post. I had already written this post in July about Innopolis, so I was at a loss for how to present these photos. As I was editing posts, I was taken back to my time there. It feels like it was years ago, and I cannot believe how quickly time is flying by! It's already December, and I'll be back in America (probably) in just seven months! I almost started crying the other day thinking about how I'll be leaving. I guess this is less about Innopolis and more about how time needs to slow down because I'm not ready to leave Russia.

ul. Lenina, 1, Ufa, Respublika Bashkortostan, Russia, 450077
I'm always scouring the internet and social media for new places to visit and explore. I spent too many years bored and hating my hometown, so now I'm trying to branch out and use that opportunity to show you what I've found in Russia. A few weeks ago I came across these sculptures, and I was surprised that I had never seen them before. I'm always convinced I've seen every inch of Ufa, and then I'm surprised when I come across something new. I couldn't tell exactly where they were located from the photos because they were very close up. Then, A and I went for a walk a few weekends ago, and I couldn't believe that they almost next to where I work.
