A very quiet and peaceful evening, blessed with no midges as it was cold but this made the skies clearer and the light and colours spectacular. We walked a little, enjoyed our evening meal with some wine and a good, long sleep. En route to Tampere now for a look see and perhaps a shop before we find somewhere for the night, we shall see! Having been here before helped ...
Finland is almost as far as I can go in Europe and, strangely, I have made 4 or 5 visits here over the past 10 years. But all of these have been to Helsinki - a very pleasant city. This time I am going up country to Tampere.
Tampere is known locally as Manse from its designation as the Manchester of Finland and was the heart of its 19th century industrial revolution. But much has changed.

We didn't get to see the end of their set which was a bit of a shame.. but we were all a bit over it. We left Kaisa at the gig and made our way back to the apartment. We all needed to be up at a reasonable hour.
Next stop will be Stockholm..
