It's not my favourite sport, walking in a snow. A while ago, when I went to Mr. Strong's office, I was walking my eyes almost closed, as usually. Suddenly a warm yellow light from some pretty looking building hit my eyes, and I stopped. The house was bright red, like no other building in the city, it was calling the passers-by to walk in. I went closer, took a peek from a keyhole, and what I saw, Ofelia! The most adorable winter market of the whole year, right there inside! It says it would open on December, so I still have to wait. Actually, I booked my own table, and will be in Ofelia on sunday 12th selling my red apples.

Ring Ring, Ring Ring

Mr. Strong; -Yes?
Molla; - Hello Mr. Strong, it's Molla calling. I'm back in Helsinki.
Mr. Strong; - Well, hello little miss Mills. So you got back home safely? Thanks for the photos, very interesting place indeed, that St Petersburg.
Molla; - It's amazing place. Sadly I was in a hurry all the time, no time to relax, just work.
Mr. Strong; - Really? That's a shame, a busy girl like you also needs time to relax, and dance. You didn't even visit the night club in the M/S Princess Maria? That was the name of the boat, right?
Molla; -Umm, yes yes, the boat. I really had to work hard, all these christmas markets coming... You know. I was just sitting in my cabin and crochetting.
Mr. Strong; - I see. Well, now when you're back, drop by in my office. I've got some new information.
Molla; - Alright, Strong. See you in the morning.

From St Petersburg with kisses

Dear Mr. Strong.

Greetings from Russia! Here's some photos I've taken in past two days. The city of St Petersburg is incredible, I've never seen so many beautiful old palaces in a same place. The river Neva is splitting the city, I'm staying in a hotel in Vasilievsky Island, in the other side of the river is the Winter Palace. I saw it only outside, I heard it takes a few days to see all the art and culture there is inside.

I'm so glad that you taught me cyrillic alphabets, it's a lot easier to spell the streetnames here. This cute shop for accessories was found near Большой проспект, look at the keyholes in the window! There's so many places in the city where I could set up my shop too, but I'm not sure if my things would sell here in Russia. We have to make more reseach on that.

Molla; -Mr. Strong, I'll start my hunt from Russia and go to St. Petersburg for a few days. I know how to say thank you in russian, so I shouldn't get into troubles. I hope to find a lot of inspiration from there, but at least I get to see the Winter Palace. I will pack my computer so that I can send you my notes and photos. See you next week, I hope you also have something new to tell me when I'm back!

Come on, Lilly! The boat is waiting!

Adventures begin!

Molla; -Mr. Strong. I'm not gonna leave before you promise to help me! I want to develop my trademark and make it a profitable business. I have a lot of talent, you must believe me.
Strong; -Well miss, you must be the smallest client I've ever met! I'm pretty sure your problems ain't much bigger than you yourself.
Molla; - It IS a big thing, for me! But I wouldn't call it a problem, it's more like a mission.
Strong; - Aha. A mission...
Molla; -Yes. You see, Mr. Strong, I have the keyhole, but I don't have the key. You have to help me to find it.
Strong; - Hmm... well. Alright. Let's see what I can do about it. You must keep in your mind that it's raw world out there, your kind of tiny little girl might get eaten.
Molla; - Oh, Mr. Strong! You are the greatest detective in the whole 9th floor of this office building! I have so much ideas, I can't wait to start!
