Ode to Joy

A wonderful cheerful city guardian angel loves to rest from time to time among its protections in the Turku Cathedral Tower. It's his favorite place, if you look carefully As you pass the cathedral, you see how the air flows right there under vibrate and when you discover how huge the church itself is, you can also understands how big an angel can be, and how much joy he can sing to the city, when he hums: "Ode to joy" (Varis Hanna: I named my book "Ode to Joy", although I am more Bach-fan)
