After clean up, Hoki and Helena sat back down for a couple more drinks. As I had made good use of the wine in making the risotto, and lubricating myself, I decided to pass on any more drinking. I headed back to my room to get my stuff and my mind ready to leave.

The canal is roughly 27 miles long and goes from Lake Saima at 78 meters above sea level to Vyborg Bay at sea level on the ...
