The Diary of a Taxi Driver in Finland

By Tommi Topelund

Comedy & satire, Biography & memoir | eBook


The first and only book about real Finns and Finnish life written by a local taxi driver. See also: lifeinfinlanddotnet. This book reveals the true face of Finland and Finnish national character as seen through the eyes of a foreign cabbie. The author shows that Finland is more than its popular image of calm and stoic race car drivers and hot saunas in beautiful woodland landscapes. Indeed, Finns come in all types - ranging from calm and funny to wild and furious ones. The author's descriptions of nightlife in Finland are a particular treat. The book contains appearances by other nationalities as well. The Part One and Two contain tales about other nationalities – Estonians, Russians, Swedish, Americans, Germans, Jamaicans, Thais and others. The stories vary from pleasant encounters to unpleasant and dangerous episodes. The book includes many photos and maps, doubles as a phrasebook, and includes over 90 references about different people and places in Finland. Not recommended for aesthetes and persons under the age of 18!
