Jätkäsaari Blues

Living amidst a huge construction site can be painful. Mieluisa collected some complaint rants about living in Jätkäsaari, a new district of Helsinki that will be under construction for years to come. “The sidewalks and pedestrian crossings are not in use, how am I supposed to get home? The street is a puddle of dirt and holes! Why is there no green space?” and so on. The rants evolved into a humorous collection of poems (in Finnish) called Jätkäsaari Blues. How do you like your neighborhood?
