We really enjoyed the welcoming ceremony at Myllyhaka School. These children were showing us what Finns get up to in the sauna - a very important part of Finnish life!
This photograph was taken in the grounds of Myllyhaka School. Finland is a beautiful country and this scene is typical of the area around Nokia.
Finnish baseball - a great game which we all enjoyed, and part of Finland's cultural heritage.

We were invited to a typical sauna evening by our Finnish colleagues. After we had our sauna we swam in this lake. The water was very cold indeed - there had been ice on it the week before. We were then treated to this beautiful sunset. What a beautiful country.
