Morning in Finland - party time in America!

I'm pretty bad at getting up in the morning, but I woke up at 5 am with no alarm and just had to get up and turn on NPR. It was playing some jolly music that sounded faintly like the Monty Python music - Sarah Palin's theme tune perhaps?

It's looking good - even the godless atheists are winning! Hurrah!

Right - I'm off to party. The American ambassador to her credit (she's a Bush appointee) and the American Chamber of Commerce are hosting a breakfast party in Helsinki.

It's really bizarre hearing the whole story unfold across the day here (Wednesday that is!) due to the time difference. The polls on the east coast were actually opening as we went to bed here last night and Obama's victory speech began just as I left the office this afternoon!

I was at that party four years ago and the mood was somber to say the least. Now it must have been happier days. Hope you enjoyed yourself.
