interview among orchids

My first interview of the day yesterday, for Finland's Swedish-language radio station, took place in the tropical greenhouse of Helsinki's Botanic Gardens. The journalist, Marit Lindqvist, asked thoughtful, perceptive questions as I revelled in orchids. Scents of bloom and decay wafted in the steamy air around us, the song of dripping water serenaded us.

The interview is in English, with Swedish translation. You can listen to it here.

Hi, Read your interview with Henri Purje. Really good. Here is the link incase Henri has not posted it to you.

Hope to see you at the Festival. Do come to our stand. We will be displaying our innovative stove technology!

See you na Karibu Finland

Thank you, Peter.

Look forward to checking out your stoves tomorrow - I'll bring peppers to grill :-)
