... to Julli's for dinner. Julli's has been open in Äkäslompolo since 1999 and the menu probably hasn't changed in all that time, which is probably one of the reasons it remains very popular and like today, really busy.
We managed to get the last table in restaurant, a table for six, on the proviso that we would have to share if others came (which they did before we even ordered). Every time we're in Äkäslompolo we make at least ...

We met them in the Taiga Bar but our timing was a bit lousy, they were just about to eat. David, Maria and Katja decided to have one hour on slopes while they ate and we would join them for drinks later.
