Wikipedia informs me that Lahti is Finland’s Chicago. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lahti
I have been to Lahti about a dozen times and I’ve visited Chicago only once for a Cadillac sponsored squash tournament in 1997.
It was in a Chicago nightclub where I shook the hand of Donald Gibb, the actor who portrayed Ogre in Revenge of the Nerds (1984). http://m.imdb.com/name/nm0316455/
Lahti is a pretty cool place and a great deal smaller in comparison to Chicago. 😃
I am strolling about Lahti’s snow covered and bustling downtown today for the next few hours.
My primary mission is to smile and wave to all the small business owners who are hard at work today.
Thus far, I have a 100% success rate on people who wave back. Perhaps a bit perplexed, but they do wave back with a smile on their friendly faces.
Welcome to Lahti. We wave back.
