It is done! The wheel of fortune has finally spoken and the arrow pointed straight at physiotherapy student Josefina Ingves. We congratulate her on winning the Arcada Jopo Raffle and a brand new bike to boot!
What Jopo competition, you say? No one passing the Big square in the Arcada building lately can possibly have failed to notice the big cube in the corner. Students peeking inside saw a Jopo which could be won by sharing a favourite Helsinki excursion spots here at Inside Arcada. One month later we were just shy of 30 posts, and it was time to conduct the raffle.
Josefina has up until now been a bikeless lass, so it feels rather fitting that it was in her hands that the Jopo ended up. “I’ve wanted one for such a long time,” she said when accepting the prize. “But they are just so awfully expensive!”
When asked if she really will spend her days riding around Helsinki and visiting Suomenlinna with her friends (like she suggested in her post) the answer was “yes indeed”. But it might have to wait until spring, since she is now off home to Pampas for a work practice period.
Once again, congratulations Josefina! As for the rest of you competitors (and innocent bystanders) you can take comfort in the fact that we now have a long and excellent list of excursion spots gathered in our original blog post!
