Aleksi Heikkinen
My Finnish "e-mail buddy" was a seventeen-year-old boy, Aleksi Heikikinen.   He lives in a small village, called Sipoo.  He has two sisters.

In the beginning his hobbies were ice-hockey in the winter, and basketball and football in the summer.  Now, he has discovered a new hobby, kick-boxing.

The school in Finnland starts at 8:10 am, he told me, and each lesson takes 45 minutes.

Aleksi listens to almost all kind of music, but his favourite bands are U2 and Soundgarden.

Well people, this is the global impression that I got from Aleksi.

I think he did not want to write letters to me, because they were al very short and written in a very bad English.  Also now, I have received no picture or opinion.
