Can you imagine going shopping and finding a beautiful ellipse? I found it in my first day in Helsinki! I wasn’t looking for it but I was walking through the streets of Helsinki looking for a restaurant where having lunch was cheaper than 10 € (it’s almost impossible!) and… look at Kampii store! It’s a commercial store with a bus station inside so it had to be cheap! I walked into the mall and after a few steps I looked up. Waw… Here is my ellipse! Usually in such malls we find more circles or squares more than other conics. However, it was my first mathematical surprise in Helsinki.
