Home to Me

BY LORCAN SIRR
@ VOL 10 ON DEC 02, 2015

He spent a period of time a Europe's most highly qualified truck driver, until a Finn called Teemu also got his PhD and a new Scania. He likes giving controversial talks, but has sometimes noted a bright red dot following him about on his forehead and wonders what that is.
