Riga, Latvia. March 2010.

HELSINKI-I’ve spent the majority of the last two weeks bouncing around Finland, Latvia, and England.

In Finland I completed two long assignments I have been working on since April on the relations between the Finnish and Russian orthodox churches. The articles and photos will appear in the May 2010 issue of Welcome to Finland.

In Latvia I completed a forthcoming article on the country’s financial crisis.

In England I met with several editors, who encouraged my late April 2010 move to Istanbul, Turkey.

Now, I am back in Finland, sorting myself out and prepping for the next move. I hope to be based in Turkey long term. In the coming months this blog will evolve into something that offers information on Turkey’s economic and political expansion.

Until then check out my photos of Leonid Federov alongside  this article by my friend St. Petersburg based writer Hardie Duncan.
