Finnish Independence Day 2013

A cold and snowy morning

A cold and snowy morning

Itsenäisyyspäivä

Kauimmaiseksi kajasti
se itse sininen risti
salmen suussa, sillan päässä,
kylän kappelin kohalla,
kun kilisi kirkon kellot,
kun lepäsi tyynet järvet,
kun meni majoille päivä.
– Eino Leino

Happy 96 years of Independence, Finland!

    • Helsinki had only 6 hours of daylight today, and we had 7.5 hours so we are ahead a little bit. On the other hand it is +1 degree C in Helsinki and -4.4 (-11 with the wind chill) in Victoria, and getting colder as we speak, so perhaps we should all flock to Helsinki for a balmy holiday!
