... else it will be a really horrible flight. One particularly sad aspect of that is that it was a gift. By midnight in Finland during summer it's still perfectly light outside, and I couldn't get to sleep until a good while into the morning, then the sun comes back up again around 4am which meant I woke up at 5:15am, well before my 6am alarm - and decided I might as well get going.

... are different. Near to the boat there was a portable toilet, identical to those found on construction sites and the like in the UK. On either side of it were two acorn-shaped structures that upon closer examination were pissoirs. We were amazed to see, later that evening, queues of young women waiting their turn to use the toilet whilst young men sauntered up and relieved themselves in the pissoir, quite nonchalantly.
