Re: From kenya to finland

I can promise you there are other ways to go to Finland e.g marriage(like mentioned above) aupair, studies...etc so don't be so doubtful The Au-pair residency has a maximum of 1 year I believe and is not possible to extend and lots of requirements, so no option if you want to stay here. Studies wil...

True but I doubt...

Re: Many Saints Of Newark

If not, there is always a way to watch it online or offline, might be an illegal way though... but if you google it, I am sure you will find a good source to watch it from, when using your search words correctly. 8)

Re: annual car inspection

Check what they charge you for doing the katsastus. Normally if you fail the original katsastus company would do a recheck for free or a very small amount Exactly, it will save you some euro's if you have it retested at the same station where it was tested when it did not pass, most likely about 20...

Re: Procedure to sell car in Finland

I think you'll have to ask around for offers, possibly you can get a better price from official dealers of the same brand of cars as yours.
