On 1st of May, the Fuksi (engineering freshmen students) that were more active in the universitary life are awarded with the Teekkarikaste ritual, in which they are dipped in the cold (really cold) water inside a basket, becoming Teekkaris (official engineering students, no longer freshmen). It was such a honour to be one of them :)Taken by alvaro_diso with a Lomography La Sardina - Fischers Fritze (available in our Online Shop) loaded with Lomography X Tungsten 64 film (available in our Online Shop) in Tampere, Finland. These tags describe this photo: vappu, dipping, crane, basket, rapids, and teekkarikaste. Date: 2012-05-01. This photo can also be found in the album 5 - Wappu days, Tampere (Tungsten).
