Siv and I spent the weekend in Helsinki after my work there finished.
On Friday night we walked around town a bit in some quite heavy snow. Here's Siv standing by an ice sculpture near the train station.
On the Saturday Morning we went for a walk around town. By now it was sunny and cold. Here we are outside the impressive railway station in central Helsinki.
Later that day, Risto came and picked us up, and we went out to his house in Nurmijärvi. While he prepared dinner, Siv, Ville and I went for a walk. By now the wind was picking up, and it was a bit chilly to say the least!!
In the evening we relaxed and generally had a very pleasant time. Here's Risto with a gift from his sister for his 50th birthday...as you can see, its Valio themed!
And of course what other way would you want to end the evening except to sit in a sauna be whipped by Risto with birch twigs and then roll around in the snow in minus 13c !! Here's Ville, Vellu and myself braving it. Risto opted for a shower!
A LITTLE BIRD TOLD ME...
