About me

A twenty-something girl from Finland, spending one fall in coolest city in the world for a political scientist.

I’m Crista, and this is as much a blog, as a way for me to capture my time in Washington, District of Columbia, and to share it with the people I love back home in Finland.

So, I’ve moved to a pretty crazy city. This is the mecca of insane political maneuvers and twists and turns. This is the city from where one tweet can send tsunami waves around the world. It’s also the capital of a deeply divided country, to which I’ve come to better understand the dynamics of the American mind. I can’t wait!
