Moscow pictures.

Some pictures from my Moscow business trip. Such an interesting city so full of contrasts.


The War On Drugs and bikes.

How cool is this! The War On Drugs performed at this years Flow Festivals bike park! See the video below:

Also I bought a bike today! Isn´t she a beauty! It is from a Finnish brand called Helkama and the model is "Saana".


Mood is this.
