I will live in Oulu for 3 years with my wife and two children. Anyone knows how much money I need for living (monthly)?
#finlandese on Feb 23, 2013 :
finland is not all sunshine and roses, not by a long shot, but you will find that out if you stay longer. undercurrent of depression, social apathy, the single mothers living below poverty line whose children in most cases become junkies or alcoholics and die young. I recommend the documentary film "Reindeerspotting" if one wants to see that side of this nation.
