The flag

After much trial and error, I finally managed to cast my vote in the European parliament elections. Funnily I have to vote for Finns in the Finnish embassy, even if living in the UK. I wonder if I could vote even if I was living in a country outside of the EU? It seems that most of the candidates are running their ship with the best intentions of their home country first, and the EU as a distant second, making the selection of a suitable candidate that much harder. Thankfully there were plenty of suitable, open minded and well travelled candidates.
I had to vote under a grey and blue flag though. Somehow the embassy flag looked dirty, but there is hope that it was an optical illusion, as the building is really white and it was really sunny. However, the white of the flag should be as white as there is, and this wasn’t.

Naturally, I had to whine about this to the embassy.
